    How do I fix high CPU usage on Mac?

    faffe

      For a while, ENS has been hogging my CPU. There are at all times anything between one and eight VShieldScanner processes, all reporting 100% CPU. This makes the computer more or less unresponsive.

       

      I have not gotten much help from the logs in finding out what the problem is. Is ENS choking on some specific files? The log only tells me that the scan queue is too long, and sometimes that it doesn't like som file, more often than not it's a configuration .plist file or a file from the McAfee installation.

       

      In my frustration I reimaged the whole computer, but when reinstalling ENS from our ePO the problem reappeared.

       

      Any troubleshooting help would be appreciated.
