First thing, we've had some reports of high memory usage with mcshield (not necessarily scanning videos though), and we're releasing a patch next week that might resolve this issue, as it addresses those memory issues with mcshield. If that does not resolve your issue though, we'll need to dig in a little more and see what's up.
Additionally, it would be a good idea to update your video players just to be safe there. Do you also have any other security software installed? I've seen issues before where that other software will try to scan the file, we'll try to scan that file and the other processes that are scanning it, and a loop happens.
Thanks for your response. I've been tracking the other thread you mentioned in case it was the same or similar issue. Doesn't seem the same effect but you never know.
FYI all the players are the latest releases and there are no other security systems in place (as far as I can tell). I';ve removed things like windows defender in case that was it but no change. The world hasn't stopped.
The issue is new since prior to this I hadn't had a problem then McAfee did an update and now I have an issue but only with media player and Nero show time??
We live in hope.
PS you might see me in the other thread as well
