    McAfee Service Host CPU Spikes

      Dear All,

      Looking for a bit of help.

      I very recently bought a new Samsung Windows7 64-bit laptop.

      However I am getting massive spikes in the CPU usage out of McSvHost.exe (up to as much 55%) for a few moments every 10 minutes or so causing everything else to shudder.

      This happens most while using the internet but is not limited to simply listening to music through itunes.


      I understand from looking at the discussions there is 'Service Host has encountered problems', I have yet to see this message, but may be linked.


      Can anyone help?
