I have a machine where the McAfee scanner service is running high CPU (around 98%) however its still the same when I change the Threat Provention policy for On Access scanning to a policy where its not enabled.
Has anyone else seen this type of behaviour on a device.
I have had a similar issue which Tech Support could not resolve. At about 5:00 pm most days, McAfee Scanner Service started and CPU usage spiked to 90+%, rendering my computer basically unusable at the time of day when I have been trying to complete time-critical work. McAfee UI did not indicate that a scan or update was running, and MVT did not detect any issues. Today, a light bulb went off: could Win10 have started something? Sure enough, Task Scheduler in Win10 Control Panel has a task: "DAD.Execute.Updates" triggered to start the program: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee\DynamicAppDownloader\DADUpdater.exe" at 5:01 pm. I reset the trigger to fire at 5:00 am.
