My computer is running slow. When ever it starts up I have to wait for Mcafee to run. I can here it thrashing the disk. Using sys internals I can see there are 20 plus copies of MpfAlert.exe
When I click on the Mcafee icon in the system tray it takes minutes to respond.
Trying to access the help button does nothing.
To understand the issue better, could you please answer the questions below:
Which version of McAfee Antivirus is installed on the PC? When does this occur?
Does restarting the computer fixes the issue?
Suggest you run the McAfee Virtual Technician (MVT) and see if it helps. If you still have the issue try reinstalling the antivirus.
