Hello @hbs,

Sorry for the inconvenience caused

Please let us know the below information to assist you better

1. What is the version of the McAfee program that is  running on the computer.

2. Is that the McAfee program is taking the complete usage of CPU or is that McAfee is blocking the audio production software.

3. Also provide us with windows version that you are using on the PC.

Regards

Re: How to close Macafee in task manager

Windows 10 last update and macafee 16.0

It's not that macafee is taking all the cpu ressources, it's just that I want to have the choice to completly close it so it takes 0% cpu if I want to, when I am working on large project and I need all my computer power

 

thanks

Re: How to close Macafee in task manager

Hello @hbs,

we are sorry for the delay in response.

Thanks for the information provided.

When you open task manager you will see McAfee running in the background where you can select and click on end process,also in same task manager you will another tab called  "Details" where you will see other application process running in the background, you can end process for all McAfee related applications so that McAfee does not use your CPU usage. We do not recommend doing this since your computer might be vulnerable to threats,since you asked for a solution we are providing steps to close McAfee completely, so that you can your other programs

If you need further assistance please contact us through community post so that we can assist you better.

Regards
