I've just - again run into the following situation:
Why do these products not communicate and signal amongst themselves? This is the equivalent of a DOS on my system and enough reason to contemplate dumping Mcafee and going elsewhere. Has anyone though of a way around this silly behaviour?
BTW: I run Total protection 11
Yes seen the update during a scan. Supposedly it should not proceed did yours?
It is a good thought how about adding this as an idea ( whoops see you already have thanks will vote it up.
I will reask the question in tomorrows call. I assume things went downhill when all 3 happened?Message was edited by: Peacekeeper on 26/09/11 7:58:38 PM
Thanks Peacekeeper. Downhill is not sufficient, I left the system alone as it was unusable. It went into a sort of coma, I could not revive it so shut it down. I'm working from the affected system now, about to find out from logs what happened yesterday. Possibly the update waited for the scan to complete, but backup should wait as well IMHO.
Online backup does not check or from what our tech says ever check what Virusscan is doing. Scanning should not run without a check first for an update that is the preferred way but not the way it works at present. Our techs are chasing this up to see if Development can change it for a future release.
The ideas should be bumped if you have not done so already.
Online backup + (scheduled) scan is more then enough to completely occupy disk-IO on my system and render it useless. Even during scan + backup, CPU / memory are hardly utilised, the only task for the CPU is switching between processes screaming for disk blocks... contention is the name of the game.
