McScript_Inuse & cPU with EPO

We have had several users who are running older systems, Pentium 4 & III, complain about mcscript-inuse locking their systems up for a few minutes.

All of these systems are managed via our EPO server. Below are the settings that we use for EPO:

Each client running an EPO managed Update Task every 30 minutes.
EPO Agent is configured to run as follows:

Agent to server communication = 30 minutes
Agent enforces policies = 30 minutes

Are there any changes that we can make to improve this situation. What other settings do other EPO Admins use to help the user?

Try increasing the settings.
i've got agent to server = 240 mins
and policy enforcment = 40 mins

RE: McScript_Inuse & cPU with EPO

We're getting similar complaints, also mainly on older workstations. We're using the defaults:
Agent-to-Server Communication Interval: 360 minutes
Policy Enforcement Interval: 45 minutes

Check what McScript is doing via the mcscript.log file
