I have the same issue. Like the other person mentioned, I just did a huge Windows update. McAfee is eating up my CPU so much I could barely create an id for this forum. I look forward to a fix!
Same problem here.
Not as high as for some users (CPU usage for McAfee leaps to 30-40% now and then). This started happening quite recently, and leads to intermittent audio stutters and jerky behavior on my laptop.
I assumed it was McAfee, as it has been misbehaving in the past.
Please fix ASAP.
We haven't been successful collecting required logs for this problem. Am sure everyone admits that log collection in a state where PC is unusable is not possible. So to tackle this we are going to gather Memory dumps from the affected machine(s).
A complete Memory dump is what we are targeting; this means that all the events prior to the issue will be dumped to a single file.
1. Enable Complete Memory dump by following steps below
Note 1: By default, Complete memory dump is disabled. You can enable the option if the computer has more than 2 GB of physical RAM.
Note 2: If you want to enable the Complete memory dump option, manually set the CrashDumpEnabled registry entry under the following registry subkey to 1:
2. Wait for the problem to occur (at least 10 minutes) and note down the time.
3. Post back here so that a Level 2.5 Engineer will reach out to you for collecting the logs and transferring it back to McAfee
In my laptop, as reported earlier, CPU usage hovers around 90% thus slowing down everything. I have enabled complete memory dump and your engineer can collect the log any time. Trust you will find a quick remedy as I am at the end of my patience
The problem is getting worse. Harder and harder to work on my computer.
I feel reluctant to volunteer my time to work for you to fix this - you're a billion dollar corporation and I honestly expect you to use that money to make a product that works.
I have already paid for this, and I'm not exactly a McAfee groupie. I'm just someone who expects the product I paid for to work.
Simple. Fix it, or I'm leaving for a better solution.
