Re: Latest update causing excessive CPU and Floppy Drive activity

Hello Peacekeeper,

Do we have a fix?

Do we have a build number for a fix?

. . . still waiting . . .

Re: Latest update causing excessive CPU and Floppy Drive activity

No build number given sorry The fix for the floppy drive accessing noise issue was released last thursday to Au and Ko areas and US and UK area tomorrow. It is a staged release so I assume not every1 will get it at the same time. Only available to 12.8 users 13.6 will get the fixes for the other issues this release fixes later on.

Re: Latest update causing excessive CPU and Floppy Drive activity

I'm in Australia.

I re-enabled my floppy drive and the grinding began instantly, continued for about 5 minutes then ceased. I haven't heard a peep from the drive since that (touch wood).

Not sure if i've got the updated version yet, but here are my build numbers.

Security Center:

Version: 12.8

Build: 12.8.958

Last update:  17/05/2014

McAfee Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware:

Version: 16.8

Build: 16.8.819

Last update:  24/07/2014

Engine version: 1959.0

Engine creation date: 23/07/2014

McAfee Personal Firewall:

Version: 13.8

McAfee Anti-Spam

Version: 13.8

They're the only components of Total Protection 2014 I have installed. Floppy is still silent on XP after 30 mins though.

Re: Latest update causing excessive CPU and Floppy Drive activity

were those numbers there before of after you noticed the noise stopped. Wondering if an update came through while the nise was happening.

Re: Latest update causing excessive CPU and Floppy Drive activity

I got an email with your reply in this thread saying the fix was released in AU last Thursday so I figured I'd try re-enabling the floppy under System Devices and see if it's fixed.

It's possible it was fixed earlier. I don't know. It grinded for 5 mins non-stop then shut up.

I just get the normal floppy seek when rebooting Windows, so seems to have been fixed.

Re: Latest update causing excessive CPU and Floppy Drive activity

I can confirm you have the fix as it would have happened next boot .

You must have gotten an update during the noisy period.

Is the update to the SC? Just got a large update , but the items updated were VS , SA , and Quick Clean/Shredder.

Re: Latest update causing excessive CPU and Floppy Drive activity

That should be it. It was scanner doing it so one expects a VS update.
