Open explorer go to the file's location and right click on the files choose properties and details. Mine is fine as I run the 15.1 new version of the product which I installed prior to them stopping installation of this build.
Yes I got this message
I will be offline now as night here in australia and time for family time and sleep.
Sorry, didn't realise you are in Australia - sleep well!
This is what I see under "Details" for the file McClient Analytics:
File Description: AnalyticsSDK
File version: 126.96.36.199
Product version: 188.8.131.52
Date modified: 26 January 2017
I don't have a screenshot of Task Manager showing what was happening on Saturday. I just remember that the CPU activity was 91%.
Being lazy I did not read all 27 pages of replies and techno-jargon that I don't understand.
BUT someone replied it might be a Google problem. So I uninstalled Chrome and all is right with the world.
I installed Chrome weeks ago but only today did I have the problem with Analytics SDK blocking all access to internet and mail.
Peackepper: Check C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee\ClientAnalytics folder: If date that file is same as last update and after Feb 1 you probably have it. we will request a better way of checking in our Monday call.
So, mine is still not updated? My McAfee last updated on 5 Feb 2017.
not sure what happened but appears another mcafee update totally locked up my win10 machine again temporarily. After uninstall and reinstall from last week, all was ok for several days with client analytics off. Just now after working find for 30 minutes, browser (chrome) totally froze. Could not get out to any site. Shut down chrome and noticed other instances of chrome still running in taskmanager. Killed all I could (one couldn't be killed) but would not relaunch. Noticed analytics process again running. Rebooted machine,could not get online via browser. Opened command window and tried to ping on internet, everything timed out. Tried open from mcafee task bar icon "configure firewall". No dialogue for about 5 minutes. Finally came up and turned firewall off. Browser immediately began responding again. Went to control panel and disabled analytics service again (had been changed on me to be manual). Did a check for updates. Claimed it found none (least none it told me about). Turned back on firewall and seemed ok for a while until I get a popup that said "firewall is off"??????? Went back into firewall settings (responded immediately this time) and was again showing off. Turned it back on and seems ok right now.
Just checked my analytics legacy version directory based on comments about "do you have the fix" and looks like the push of this caused the temporary havoc on my machine again. Have disabled analytics service again (it actually stopped this time when I told it to stop).
Not sure if it was still trying to complete the install after a reboot, but sure hope I don't have to go through this every time something new is pushed on me.
My Chrome did hang again. At the moment of hang ClientAnalyticsService consumed just 2.4 MBytes of RAM.
Obviously ClientAnalyticsService was enabled. McAfee engine version: 2879.0 (2/3/2017). Update time of the newest file in C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee\ClientAnalytics folder: 01/26/2017. Probably this is the date I last time reinstall McAfee.

In one of the computers I have the same issue with AnalyticsSDK process. But I cannot kill the process. And disabling the ClientAnalyticsService and rebooting does not works either. ClientAnalyticsService component installed is:
I have no Internet connection at all, any explorer and the system itself. I can not run mvt. Anything related to McAfee software goes far too slow, the rest of the software works fine, despite that process is making a high use of CPU. There is no way to open the console, unistall....
I need help to move on, considering that I do not have Internet connection in that computer, as there is on way I can work. I can send a dmp file of the process I have just created.
