BT Virus Protect High CPU Usage caused by McAfee Management Service Host

I am running BT Virus Protect v16.0 R22. Lately the MMSH has been hogging the CPU and really slowing my machine down. I noticed on other threads that this has supposed to been fixed in R15, yet I'm seeing it in R22. Can you please advise. I am running Windows 10 latest release.

Not seeing this  maybe it is a BT version issue. Mine is at 0% and never caused an issue. The mods need to look into this.

Oh I assume you have never had another scanner present and if so removed it with its own removal tool?

To understand better, please let us know when the CPU usage goes higher

  • When browsers are opened
  • When scan was initiated
  • During Windows / McAfee update
