Ever since the introduction of the version of McAfee's Security
History that allows the user to choose from day or week or whatever,
it has been taking longer and longer to access my Security History.
Now, I can't get access to it at all. I think that this might be a
glitch on McAfee's part.
Quoted from McAfee Communities user dwdeclare at
"The security history for my mcafee internet security 11.6 will not load.
when i click on "security history" i get the "please wait" prompt and the
mcuihost.exe begins to take up a lot of cpu. when i close the security
history window after waiting for several minutes, the mcuihost.exe is
still going and i have to end the process via windows task manager."
I am in the same situation as user dwdeclare.
It reminds me of the situation with Navigation > Quarantined
and Trusted Items > Quarantined Potentially Unwanted Programs, where
it used to be that if you had McAfee set to detect and delete cookies,
the list of Quarantined Potentially Unwanted Programs would become
so large that the feature would be inaccessible. There was a fix for
that problem, though, whereby the file could be located on one's hard
drive and flushed. I wish there was a similar fix for the Security
I have the process management program called Process Lasso Pro
(made by Bitsum Technologies), and there is a feature where if you
click on the All processes tab and place your cursor over a process,
you will get a box that shows a whole lot of information, including
the location of the process on your hard drive.
This is the location given for mcuihost.exe (see attachment for
screen capture JPG of Process Lasso's information):
The presence of html in the pathway makes me wonder whether
McAfee's current Security History feature requires retrieving data
from the internet.
