I am also experiencing this issue with version 184.108.40.2066. I am running the Anniversary Update of Windows 10 x64, with Chrome and Firefox. I do not have WOT installed.
It does not seem to matter which browser I use, it constantly uses 26% CPU at idle, and 200MB of memory.
Hopefully One of our Tech 2.5 Engineers will pick up this thread, and add you to the list of others experiencing this issue. Would you be willing to allow them to 'Collect' Logs in a effort to resolve this problem?
All the Best,

Just to clarify
WebAdvisor version 262 had Affld 649, whilst version 266 had 0
My McAfee Security Center is version 15, Build 15.0.166, Affld 649-1, Language en-gb
McAfee Internet Security version 14.0, Release Name 14.0.R10
So does it matter if the WebA dvisor Affld differs from the one associated with my Security Center?
I had my online chat with the McAfee people, the first guy said that it was normal for WebAdvisor to be running at 50%.
I told him that cannot be so.
The second guy wanted to run Microsoft upates, but I only install ones which I have checked out.
So we didn't get anywhere with this problem. I have uninstalled WebAdvisor for now so that I can use my laptop without it bombing out 100%
I have always found McAfee support to be lacking in the past. I asked what is the difference between 266 and 262 and the guy said "Its a different version", really, I would never have guessed.
Another thing, every time I follow a link from an email to this discussion and try and login, A box appear with something like "A minute ago" and I have to go through the process of changing my password every time. Whats that all about?
On clicking on a email link today to get to the discussion and then clicking on login, the appropriate login box appeared. So maybe its been fixed. If it happens again and will try and capture it for you.
