Hi, 

McAfee liveSafe fully up to date as of this posting - numerous McAfee services are consuming VERY HIGH CPU usage. I see this has been an issue in other posts here but given fully up to date has this issue come back?!

Re: McAfee - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

I am having the same problem on one of my laptops as well. However I have another laptop where the CPU usage is lower, but on both laptops everything si really slow.

Is this a known problem at the moment? I will have to deinstall and refund it if it stays like that...

Re: McAfee - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

I might have found out why it was so slow an my laptops. One of them has finished the full system scan and now that one runs quite with a normal speed I think.

However that doesn't explain the high CPU usage. And I would still like to know why my laptops are almost blocked during scanning. Especially because the scans take many hours for 290000 files. This is definitely not acceptable and I would like to know whether I can adjust the full system scan so it doesn't block my entire laptop.
