Ridiculous memory usage from On-Acess Scan
Aug 12, 2009 9:14 PM
I am a college student, and my college requires any computers connecting to the network to use McAfee Enterprise edition.
So I have installed it and it's using an average of 2GB of memory while my PC is just idling. When running a program I can get close to 4GB of memory usage(Max memory on my laptop).
I'm about ready to just disable the on access scanner and run Avast in the backround for on-access scanning.
Is there an optioin somewhere where I can limit mem usage or what it scans?

What version and patch level are you running?
(2gb sounds very wrong regardless though.. It may be that you have underlying issues with your machine.. the most Ive seen the OAS taking up is about 130mb)
