I have a new computer right out of the box and the first thing I did was put on SecurityCenter. WHAT A MISTAKE. There seems to be some horrible memory leaks and everyday my computer comes to a scretching halt where I have to kill mcagent.exe to regain my memory (since it is using 3.7 Gigs of the 4.0 I have). Any ideas when windows 7 will actually be supported? My subscirption ends today, so there is really no need to renew if it doesn't work (and basically makes my new computer slower than my 5 year old one)
I use McAfee Internet Security on windows 7 also but i don't have this problem(i didn't hear this before either) ,mcagent.exe uses only 3.7 MB, are you sure your's uses 3.7GB and not MB ? since i find it hard to believe it can even "suck up" that much memory, can you post a screen shot ?on 4/7/10 4:03:54 AM CDT
Have to agree Mcagent uses 2.2Mb memory when idle and 22Mb when updates coming in. This on win 7 64bit. Please post a pic of the task manager showing the use. If it is so your SC install maybe corrupt.Message was edited by: Peacekeeper on 8/04/10 6:48:37 AM
yes, it is GIG's. I know the difference. Physical memory usage is at 97% where mcagent.exe is using 3.7 GIG's. I kill the process, and memory usage goes down to around 5%. Huge memory leak. Just sit there and watch it build. Would post a screen shot, but I had to uninstall it because my computer was useless with it. People using Windows 7 beware!!!
