Mcafee came installed on my new computer and I uninstalled it using the control panel. But now the Onaccess scanner is still running and sucks up all my CPU time. I can't watch videos or do anything that needs much CPU time. How do I get rid of this program? The file name is mcshield.exe. I can find the directory but can't delete it.
Will that have removed everything Mcafee from my computers? This has been a very bad experience and I don't want anything lingering behind. I tried installing the McAfee Virtual Technician which didn't work. Is that also gone now or must I remove that separately? If so, how do I remove that? Anything else I need to know?
Nealy all the post here say the same thing I am experiencing. But I hear no solution to the poblem. I read dozens of posts on Google that say the same thing. Still no solution.
I have spent good money on McAfee protection. I am not likely to spend anymore until someone shows me the fix.
Pumkin I assume you have mcshield using 100% cpu resources issue is this correct? I have not had this ever. Only timee you will see this are as follows
1. Single core cpu ie p4 no hyperthreading
2. Corrupted install
3. as per 2 but caused by installing Mcafee over an incompletely removed alternative AV program
Have you called support they are the ones that need to check your PC out as to a cause. the normal fix is an uninstall reinstall as per
reboot and run
and reinstall from your account
This assumes your cpu ok and ram enough.
