For some time, I have been struggling with programs losing focus. Finally, I downloaded "Windows Focus Logger" to identify what is causing the problem. Every 3 hours, McUICnt.exe is doing something in my system, and that is causing my current window to briefly lose focus. It returns after about 1-2 seconds. This is extremely annoying because, if I am typing in a window (like this), I will lose keystrokes! This particularly is annoying when I am gaming. For instance, on Terraia, where having focus is particularly important and based on time-reaction, McUICnt.exe completely ruins the game and make me die because my 'attacks' are stoppedwhen this happens.
What is McUICnt.exe doing every 3 hours? Can I somehow remove it? I looked everywhere in the settings, and I cannot find a scheduled job that is running every 3 hours. Further, I checked the Windows task scheduler, and I cannot find any McAfee jobs in there at all.
I love the product, and I look forward to a resolution.
This issue has been plague users since 2010, this post suggests the only real solution is uninstalling McAfee and going with a competitor, it's still happening to me as well and has been for years. And to be clear it is not a 'pop-up' or some other piece of UI that is coming into the foreground.
