Just a thought... You don't mention which operating systems are affected but this might help on W2000, XP and Vista...... Tried disabling the "Indexing Service" in services.msc? The indexing service tends to run at random times and could be causing McAfee to scan the newly indexed files thereby using increased resources during the process.
You also don't indicate which version of VirusScan is having the problem.. So...if you don't have the most recent patches on your version of VS, please do so. (VS 8.0i is Patch #16, VS 8.5i is Patch #8, and VS 8.7i has no patch currently.)
And please checked the schedule tasks for McAfee processes that might be occurring too frequently.
Hope this helps.
Our system run windows xp service pack 2. Most systems are running 8.5 with patch 6 and we are currently testing 8.7 on a few systems.
What settings do you use?
* Scanning on reads and writes?
* How freqent do you update?
* What's the spec of the hardware?
* How many memory do you have left?
*we were scanning on reads and writes with exclutions for the major autocad directorys and office.
*updates are done on startup and at lunch time
*hardware generally is pentium d's or p4 3ghz with 2gigs of ram
Is the probelm consistant across 8.5 and 8.7 ?
Have you any tasks running at every enforcement interval ?
How long/short is your enforcement interval and ASCI ?
We have noticed the issue with 8.7 also
The only thing that enforces every time is deployment of the software if its not ther
policy inforcement is every 5 minutes and 30 minutes for agent-to-server communication.
You could try adding your autocad related processes to the low risk exclusions policy settings and switch off read scanning.
