I have recenltly installed S.a.a.S V 5.2 on a HP laptop. After the installation the CPU was being overutilized by MCSheild.exe process which is my first issue. Secondly, after the installation I get an error when attempting to make changes in MSCONFIG utility. After much troubleshooting I uninstalled S.a.a.S from the laptop and I was able to make changes in MSCONFIG and the CPU useage returned to normal.
I then proceeded to uninstall S.a.a.S V 5.2 using the cleanup utility in the McAfee security center and reinstalled McAfee S.a.a.S V5.2. But I used a differnet approach. I installed the anti-virus/spyware component first, then browser protection, and last the firewall. I wanted to see if one of the 3 components of the Security Suite was casuing the CPU to spike. Fortunately the installation was a success and the CPU seems to operating at a normal pace.
But I still cannot make changes in MSCONFIG utility. Heres a screen shot of the error I recieve. I would really appreciate any feedback.
I have read your post.
The error message seems to be regarding the admin user rights. In this case I would like to recommend you to please check the status when McAfee is disabled.
To disable McAfee,
Open command prompt --> Type the command netstop myagtsvc
Now check the status.
To enable McAfee,
Open command prompt --> Type the command netstart myagtsvc
please also try the same by login as an administrator.
