Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

I have had this issue twice in the past 3 weeks and resolved it by running the SubDBFix.exe and then rebooting the device.

 

It hasn't happend for about 2 weeks now so not sure if McAfee have now tweaked the bug, has anyone else noticed this?

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

And for me, still the same as well. From the use of that tool over four weeks by now, I have seen only one reoccurence of the issue, that was solve by closing out and restarted the laptop. mmsshost issue has not reoccured for over two weeks (and again only once in over four weeks).

Meanwhile I have had tow contacts with McAfee engineering/services teams in the last two weeks, reported the facts and we are monitoring the working of McAfee Total Protection since.

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

Hello jfnance32

MMSSHOST.exe is a McAfee service and the high CPU usage is not being caused by a virus. We are working on this issue as of this writing.

Thank you for your patience.

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

You are working on this issue as of this writing? really?

I hope you're being a bit sarcastic, because the issue was reported october or november 2017.
All that time I gave been struggling with a high tech gaming computer which acted like a geniune XT.

As of this writing I don't use McAfee anymore and I can enjoy gaming again. My subscription is till August. I don't think I'll renew, specially when the "techs" job is to downplay the issue and not solve a thing

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

This is a significant problem, my PC is also maxing out on CPU usage and McAfee Management Service Host is the cause. 

This problem has been reported by a lot of people and we are still waiting for resolution. Some like me are not that tech savvy but I managed to find this forum only to see that no real resolution has been forthcoming. 

Please resolve urgently as this is severly reducing my ability to work with my PC. Happy to supply logs.

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

Hi Farhan,

The issue was reported since before xmas, and I have to re-itterate how disappointing it is that myself, and many others, are unable to do any work on their PC becuase of the issue caused by your software...... Any quick resolution to switch off this app to continue doing some works here, then turn it back on, once you managed to resolve it? otherwiase who is responsible for the loss of my time and my disappointed clients as your app has stopped me using our PCs???

 

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

Has there been any resolution on this problem yet..... nearly thru my laptop out, because of the speed issue caused by McAfee!???

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

Hi,

i have the same issue on my laptop. McAfee MSH running at around 80% and accessing apps like wading through quicksand.

Interested to hear proposed solutions.

thanks
