i rolled back some windows updates to nov 2017
as some people mentioned could be tied to some win update
the hi cpu usage is less frequent but still there today on ocasions.
yesterday for me it peaked 61% up down up down
average 45%. ive had mcaffee sub since 2011, my issues only started
in the last month. prior to that i used norton from 2001 - 2011
i actually deleted my module core exe which also removed 0-10% use
and mcaffee still working - updating fine .
tonight bouncing between 0-15-26% once it starts my sound stutters badly
In reply to Selvan: from my side, I no longer had any issue with mmsshost after running a McAfee piece of s/w (see previous mail), therefore I can't tell if the new release help or not. Looking at Task Manager and seeking for the McAfee CPU performance, this is what I can give (and by the way, surprising to see how many McAfee subfiles are: 19 with <10% CPU usage!):
today for me fluctuating between 0 -10-17-25% cpu usuage .
tonight its between 25-50% , making me think long and hard
about my 8th year renewel in july.
3 days no answer , i also noticed when i re - installed mcafee this time
i didnt get an option of what i want to install, ive only ever installed
firewall / anti virus from the selection list, now dont even get a choice
it installs all of mcafees products which i dont want.
i went into safe mode - removed mcafee module core exe.
firewall/virus prot still works.
i then removed 2 folders MSQ / VUL , firewall/virus prot still works
guess what? cpu usage 98% free, McAfee Management Service host 0.01 %
not 20-40-60% cpu usage, and memory useage on McAfee Management Service host
fell from 230 - to 28.216 usuage . seems not allowing people a choice
of what to install anymore kinda a shty thing that we have to rip parts out
in short removing those 2 folders disabled, QUICK CLEAN - VULNERABILITY SCANNER
and SHREDDER - as well asa deleting module core exe
2 things i need to work still do, firewall/antivirus.
also took out the CORE folder from the PEF folder - firewall/antivirus still working 100%
McAfee Management Service host now at 20 meg usage on startup - much better
this what worked for me.
safe mode. drag modulecore.exe to a desktop folder.
safe mode drag MSQ / VUL folders to a desktop folder
safe mode drag only CORE folder from PEF folder to a desktiop folder
then reboot - be advised for me after that the 2 things i need still work
firewall / virus software . quick clean/shredder/vulnerability scanner become disabled
in mcafee - fine with me, and McAfee Management Service host 0.01 seems back to
normal with low cpu/and memory usage
a fix ive found - months ago alot of mcafee files where optional on install
ie - i only ever installed firewall/antivirus protection all the rest i ignored.
with the new installer all the stuff u could ignore to install is now auto
installed - so i did the following steps and cpu usage is now normal
as is my memory usage. but do at your own risk
i deleted . MODULECORE.EXE. in safe mode but left file in a folder on desktop
i deleted core folder from pef folder but left in a folder on desktop
i deleted mqs and vul folders but left in a folder on desktop
doing step 3 disabled quick clean / vulnerability scanner / shredder / fine with me never used it.
firewall and antivirus scanner still work fine for me, all i need
McAfee Management Service host useage fell dramatically . for me.
but remember doing an update will put those files back.
final update i spoke to
customer support - and had the 2 months this issue effected my system
added back to my lisence time. ty sandeep.
Then I would have another year coming. I have been complaining about this issue for about a year now... ( october/november 2017). I should be up for renewal in august, but That's not gonna happen.
My "techie" asked me one question ... access to my computer and when I refused.... never seen him again. So much for customer suport at McAfee!
I'm up for renewal in august... My 7th or 8th year... Not gonna happen.
Poor customer support, just want my money. Occasionally they sent a techie on latrine duty... "keep thos bloody customers happy" and then we get questions like "can I have access to your computer?", "Is the issue resolved with our last fix?"
Renewal? Not gonna happen with this kind of customer support
