McAgent troubles

Where do I get a patch for this problem? My husband downloaded this thing and now it's just messed everything up. Every malware program I have downloaded has not fixed the issues I am having.

Re: McAgent troubles

McAgent is running on my computer AS Mcafee. I have tried system restore, I have tried removing McAfee software and redownloading it and I have tried to look for a patch that can remove this. I have tried Malwarebytes and ION something or another... Nothing is helping.

Re: McAgent troubles

mcagent.exe is the McAfee Security Center. What's the problem?

Re: McAgent troubles

I don't think you entirely understand that it is running as malware. It's eating my memory and not allowing a real-time scan to take effect.

Re: McAgent troubles

You know what, this is zero help. I am mean ZERO. McAfee is all well and good to have, untill there's a problem, then suddenly you can't get any help whatsoever. I'm contacting AOL since that's were I get my Security Suite from

Re: McAgent troubles

Hi Mlppeace,

  • Is this upon starting up your computer?
  • How much RAM do you have?
  • What Operating System?
  • Have you tried running MVT?

Re: McAgent troubles

If mcagent.exe is grabbing all the CPU it may be that your PC is running out of memory or other system resources. If you're relying on the AOL System Requirements table as a guide I think those figures are seriously misleading.

Re: McAgent troubles

Second that I had a test box with specs

Xp xp sp3 612mb ram p4 2.8ghzcpu and it really was slow booting and doing things when mcafee scanning. Upped teh ran to 2gb and it improved heaps.

Also uninstalling should be via

Just using add/remove can leave bits of old verion.
