Periodic 100% CPU jumps

     Hey I have been getting huge surges of CPU consumption for a few months now. It happens periodically whether I'm playing a pc game, listening to music or just AFK on the desktop. I have been watching windows resource monitor and have pinpointed the culprit of these CPU spikes to be caused by McSvHost.exe which is the McAfee Service Host. I have uninstalled and reinstalled McAfee with no success at getting rid of the problem. I am 100% sure that it is McSvHost.exe that is causing the problem because my computer will not have the CPU spikes when I have McAfee off. I am not performing virus scans when this happens.

     I'm just wondering if there are any fixes for this problem? I have not been able to find one online and have seen multiple people with similar or the same problem as myself.

Some updateds since nothing has improved and no one has helped, I am running Mcafee AntiVirus Plus, the Mcafee technical support only told me to uninstall and dreinstall which I have already done and the jumps seem to be getting worse. It's been a week since I have posted and still no news, no one else has this problem?

Hey Goozle and anyone who has this problem check out this Thread where I have posted the same problem. It has a workaround idea as well.
