Is there anything being done to keep McShield from interfering and taking over the CPU?

After several communications with tech support my main computer still continues to be interefered by McShield (other computers are affected as well). The fixes done by the technician seem to help but last for one or two days. After that, I have to reboot to get McShield to stop interfering. I have already cancelled the automatic subscription renewal (five computers are currently covered under McAfee). What are the alternatives?

I use XP Pro and solved the problem of mschield excessive cpu usage is by changing the system properties, Performance Options as follows:

Adjust for best performance of

Processor scheduling : programs

Memory usage: System Cache

The above changes dramatically reduced mcschield cpu usage.
