Re: Mcafee Module Core Service %100 Disk!

Jump to solution

Still no "official" response or even a comment from a Moderator.

Is the solution provided by "tronkus" supported by McAfee?  I for one, will not be trying it until it is approved.  This is now a scandalous situation that McAfee must resolve urgently.

 

The silence is deafening.

OK. so I receive an email from McAfee saying ....

"We would like to inform you that lot of CPU is being utilized by McAfee issue has been resolved by the new release version of McAfee 16.0.R17".

I reply to this email asking if the 100% disk usage has been sorted and later get a phone call to confirm that this new release sorts both problems.

I have now reinstalled McAfee and have been running for nearly 6 hours with no problems.

Fingers crossed eh!

After suffering for several months, I reinstalled the software about 2 weeks ago and everything seemed fine until a few days ago when Module Core Service started consuming more and more disk time. It finally got so bad I decided to reinstall again.

Here is the interesting part: The new installation loads a much older version of the software that does not have all the bells and whistles of the most recent version. It appears the newer version has some problems that McAfee does not have the in-house expertise, or priority, to resolve.....

Well that has been 2 months free from the dreaded 100% disk usage but sadly, the problem has returned and I have spent hours trying to fix this issue.  Finally, I uninstalled McAfee and all is well.

I will not be reinstaling this software again.

Hello all,

This issue was known by McAfee and it was fixed in the release version 16.0.17. We don't have any reports of seeing this issue after the release of this version. The latest version of McAfee is 16.0.23

Try to update McAfee and also check if it runs on the latest version 16.0.23

Please follow the below steps to update McAfee.

  • Open McAfee  
  •  Select "Performance" tab and click "Update this app"
  •  Select "Check for updates"

Once the update is successful, please go to My Info tab and select  About.

Check if it has the McAfee Version 16.0.17 or above

Regards,
Madhan M
