Mcafee Module Core Service %100 Disk!

Jump to solution

I am a LiveSafe user and have the latest version. I've had no problems for two years. However today the 'mcafee module core service' has invaded a staple disk called. The rugged PC is almost unable to open the folder. Is there a solution to this nonsense? I can't handle any of my work, and it really hurts me!

The guy on webchat said that they can fix the issue if you contact them on webchat and allow them to take control of your PC.  You won't have to un/reinstall if they do that.  I declined this, so the guy said that the only way to fix it myself was to un/reinstall McAfee LiveSafe.

Having the same problem here and it might explain why my computer has been so sluggish for some time. I am very close to uninstalling McAfee and putting in Norton....

I've been having the exact same problem with McAfee LiveSafe as you're having; since it updated itself to a newer version when I used my computer yesterday. Now my computer has slowed down to a crawl and Task Manager is showing 100% Disk, as is shown in your screen capture picture. I don't want to have to resort to using System Restore if I don't have to, but this is a nightmare. Every program and file are taking ages to open. McAfee please, please fix this ASAP!!!

Today I right clicked on the McAfee LiveSafe taskbar icon and clicked (Check for updates). Some updates were downloaded and installed. I then decided to restart my PC and then I ran a defragmentation program I use called; Diskeeper. My PC seems to be running normally again. I’m keeping my eye on McAfee Module Core Service as shown in Task Manager. At the time of writing this, it is currently using 0% Disk. Problem fixed??? I hope so!!! My PC uses Windows 8.1

I have the same problem on two machines that updated yesterday.  Disk Usage is 100%.  McAfee Module Core Service is the culprit, according to task manager.  

Please advise us how to fix this, or issue a fix.

Also seeing this. Mcafee updated today and afterwards my workstation was very sluggish and basically unusable. Win7. Mcafee upgraded to 16.0 R16. Looked at task manager, then to resource monitor, and found hundreds of writes per second to c:\ProgramData\McAfee\ClientAnalytics\DADatabase.db-journal

hopefully there is a registry or properties adjustment to fix this. Thinking of booting into safe mode then uninstalling then reinstalling. Would like feedback from mcafee. Called support earlier and that was useless. Will call back on Saturday.

McAfee installed the updates yesterday and now I'm having the same issue.  My PC has been unusable for 24 hours now.  I hope this is fixed ASAP.

I've just started to get this problem, as well. Please put out a fix soon, I haven't had a problem the few months prior to this and I've been really happy with my services.

This has started to happen to me, as well.  I can't do pretty much anything with my PC now, since everything bogs down.  Please provide an update to resolve this ASAP!

A new update has been installed right now. Nothing has changed. The same nonsense continues. I can't run any programs with my computer! This is really frustrating!
