I think McAfee have got it wrong again. I notice now that when my Terminal servers update, the MCSCRIPT_IN_USE runs at about 20% cpu and then MCSHIELD comes back and starts running at 20% CPU constantly and my servers are screwed again. I am going to talk to them yet again.
Patch 3 for Agent 4 OR Agent 4.5 is now out (of course epo 4.5 is out) Patch 2 for vse 8.7 Engine 5400
So things have moved on. Now seeing various new problems plus a continuation of machine slowness whilst McAfee updates for 5 minutes. Online session pending for Monday with McAfee. Will let you know.:mad:
Yep, I still do experience slowness and almost 100% CPU utilization during the DAT update. This is also happening on clean Windows 7 install (32bit). It is not that bad as it is on XP but still annoying and can't believe that McAfee cannot address this issue for such a long time and so many complaints.
I have hoped that new MA and VSE 8.7 SP2 fix the problem but nothing ... at least I can receive policies and update my VSE on Win7 now 😉
MA 4.0.1494 VSE 8.7 SP2 + MSA ENG 5400.1158 HIPS 7.0.1021
D-fens: nope as I was thinking that McAfee would fix the issue with SP2 wink Actually it's really bad, I started just Firefox and Outlook 2007 then initiated update and the PC was almost unusable for about 10 minutes ... at least FF and Outlook. Utilization went up up to 50% and memory usage went from about 37MB to about 250-380MB of Engineservice.
I'm not going to open case with them as I think it's completely useless and waste of time. You can't easily reach Tier 3 and therefor it's like talking to idiots ... but I don't blame those people they can't have that knowledge ... it's actually McAfee bad policy ...
