Have a new high powered Dell Optiplex 980 with the faster available Intel i7 processor. Have been noticing that my system will become almost unusuable when the daily/dat gets installed later in the afternoon. We have our DAT's deployed via EPO between 2.30pm and 3pm each day. I know it is McAfee as when it is slow I can see the DAT being installed by looking at the EPO Agent activity. My system is using VSE 8.7i with Patch 2. I checked the release notes for Patch 3 but can't find anything that addresses this issue. I have heard other people complain about this. My system is running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Does anyone know of a solution or perhaps a hotfix?
I have/had the same issue. VSE 8.7i patch 4 is supposed to fix this issue. But for now you can manually disable(uncheck) Process on Enable located under On-Access General Policies under Scan on the General tab.
