    McAfee EngineServer.exe process sudden surge of memory consumption, causes system to freeze

      System config:

      P4 3.2ghz,

      3 gb ram

      Windows Vista

       

      I have scanned my system (with all latest updates installed with my McAfee 4.5) and there is no virus or spyware. Often when working on my system there is a sudden surge of memory consumption by McAfee "EngineServer.exe" process and my system ceases to work [just freezes]. After, may be 15 min the  "EngineServer.exe" process relaxes and my system returns to normal state. Its really annoying when you are in the middle of work and your system freezes. Any idea whatz causing this?. Any remedy for this issue?

       

      Thanks,

      Sam
