having the same problem. Using 93% of my CPU. Am happy to help but dont know a lot about computers so be nice about it. just need this fixed as its making my laptop almost impossible to use. PLEASE HELP
Having the same issue here on my laptop. Mcafee Management service host was using 90% of my cpu. I did a system restore on my laptop as this only started happening after my computer installed the latest windows updates. System restore fixed the problem until my computer automatically installed the windows updates again. Can i say GRRRR lol. Went to do another system restore and something has mucked up and no restore points were created >.<. So i uninstalled mcafee. Problem solved. Reinstalled yesterday and was working perfectly. Today after booting up its back to the same problem, although its now hovering at 75 % of using my cpu.
So is this problem linked to the last windows 10 updates? Looking for any other things l can try.
Happy to provide logs for Mcafee if you tell me what you need and how to get them.
Very annoying and off to uninstall yet again.
Ok, weird observation thats just happened to mine. Laptop was put on aircraft mode. Switched back to norrmal, and l have a fix. mmsshost is showing 0% of cpu as i type this. Don't know why that seems to have stopped the cpu hogging but if its a repeatable fix, i will take that for now. Although makes no logic sense to me?
I had the same problem for some days. My automatically prolonged abonnement is expiring in 4 days. I was tired of the heath and the noise, so I decided to stop my abonnement and I switched off the automatic prolongation. Immediately, allmost simultaneously , the CPU consumption went down and the problem ceased to exist.
Could there be a clue to cure the problem? Or was it just coincidence?
Hello, thanks for the reply. Waht do you mean exactly by :Might be polite to answer the people with problems there aswell.", Is this addressed to me?
I am just a simple user of McAfee S/W from the Netherlands. Not part of that Company at all.
PS; They just asked for someone to collect logs at time of failure and I did it.
No, it wasn't addressed to you.
It was more a remark in general, because in the other thread McAfee was active for one or two times and all went quiet.
I know they asked you for the logs, read the request and your answer. 🙂
Just glad you managed.
But it's been going on for months now and McAfee should have a solution by now.
Am a programmer myself and we don't have customer wait this long.
btw... Dutch aswell 🙂
Bedankt voor het antwoord dan! Duidelijk voor mij.
And for the others, Thanks for the answer and clear to me. Fine that we can think and help when we can .
By the way, this issue is not affected McAfee only. I saw on an other website (related to camera security!), that the S/W is having the same issue (customers are asking for help the same way that we do with McAfee). I own one of this camera, and guess what. since the Windows update, it does not work any longer on my laptop but on the home PC, no problem. Same issue as for us here!
A lot of software is having difficulty with W10, but McAfee states they're here for us, to protect us from intrusion, virusses and malware. Guess what... after months, this issue started last year, they still haven't got a solution, but they also do _not_ admit there is a problem.
When I'm running Life Save I have to disable the firewall and the scanner to be able to us my gamecomputer. In what way am I protected from intrusion at that time?
Problem with McAfee is that they think they're doing a great job, and as long as they pretend we're not here we'll go away eventually. Indeed a much followed strategy with software producers. Got a couple of apps on my phone that followed the same strategy. But an app is usually free, or inexpensive, not 90 euros a year
