There was another individual whom experienced the same thing. Is your Software (Security Center/Suite) provided directly from McAfee? (Affld 0). Any other Affld # is usually 3rd party. I agree your CPU Usage should not be that high. There are currently Technicians that are gathering logs in a effort to get this issue resolved.
I believe that Mcafee suite came with the laptop when I bought it with a free trial period. I then probably just followed the instructions once the trial period was up and stayed protected, ie pay for it. Its a long time ago now. The laptop is a Sony VPCY11M1E.
The McAfee guy wanted to uninstall my suite and reinstall it. But last time they did that on another pc of mine, they could not get it to install and I had to restore from backup. They blame my machine at the time having system or file errors, but I don't think so.
If others are experiencing the same issues with 266 then the changes between 262 and 266 must be something to do with it. Sometimes mcsacore.exe would run using 50+ % even without opening IE.
I'm from Support, would like to connect with you and gather McAfee logs for further investigation. Please follow me to send and receive Private messages.
what do you mean by "Please follow me to send and receive Private messages"?
