    email scanner problems

    knightshold

      In the past week, my computer slowed to a crawl when email was open.  I am running McAffee under windows 7.  I opened task manager, went to applications and clicked show processes from all users.  I discovered that the McAffee email scanner was consuming between 25% and 75% of my CPU cycles.  Since McAffee has been running for months w/o trouble, I reasoned that it was malware that infected the McAffee software.  At first I tried deleting the application, but I couldn't.  I went to my download area and restarted the McAffee installation.  Before it runs, it clears out malware & viruses.  This worked!  Everything is back to normal!  This is a big time saver orer uninstalling and reinstalling McAffee software!
