    McSmtFwk.exe - Excess CPU Usage

      Task Manager shows McSmtFwk.exe using 25% CPU even when no programs are running.  Does anyone know of conflicts it has with ther programs?

            I have 3 User McAfee Internet Security - don't know DAT version or how to find it

            Windows 7 Home Pemium 64 bit

            No other security software installed

            No pop ups or threats


            Task Manager shows McFmtFwk constantly using 25% CPU when nothing else is running.

              From within your security center , Click on Navigation then click on About and let us know the version of virus scan and DAT version  ?

              Check for updates in security center and run a full scan and check the status of the above process, If its still spiking in CPU,
