McAfee Security Updates

My McAfee Security Suite wants to check and download updates several times a day.   This is annoying as it slows my computer down when it is doing so.  To check several times a day is overkill....but I don't see a way to adjust this other than turning the feature off.  Does anyone know how to change this?

          The software generally polls for updates every four hours. However there is a known issue with it Hanging, if you will (Displaying a spinning arrow) and is expected to have a fix soon. Generally you can open your McAfee UI>Check for updates and it will eventually stop the polling.

          This has also been brought up as a 'Topic of Discussion' for this Monday's Conference Call.
