It is possible the malware corrupted the Mcafee install. I would try the following
have you tried running MVT at
If no fix try a clean reinstall as per
reboot and run
and reinstall from your account
The re-install of the program seems to have solved my issue. I get much smaller CPU usage(5-15%) and my gmes are playable at 60+ FPS
I will monitor the usage to see if anything happens. Thanks!
Please do and also can you post the current security centre version?
The Security Center version is: 12.8, build 12.8.908
However, the scanner seems to have jumped to 15-30% CPU usage on average, and is consistently staying there. I am still able to play, but at less FPS and more lag.
Monitor it for a day more then post a pic of the task manager and I will ping a tech to contact you via this thread.
You have no other scanners installed?
My only scanner is McAfee. I deleted all my other antiviruses and such.
90% of my programs are using little CPU and Memory besides the target game and the scanner. I will keep in touch and post a pic tomorrow.
When you removed the other scanners which ones were they? The other scanners such as Symantec etc need to be removed via their own removal tools as they leave bits that can react with Mcafee.
Just a thought
The scanners were removed completely via their removal tools so that is fine. This is a screenshot of Task Manager after ~30m of the computer being on:
This was the amount that McAfee On Access Scanner(The highlighted orange) that it was constantly using, and this is with ending all other programs I was using. It would go higher as the computer sat, but after 30 minutes or even less the computer would drastically slow down. When I first start the computer it was fine.
Did you try tweaking the settings in mcafee RTS for high performance rather than best protection. Also try changing the virtual memory allocation to custom - min = 1.5xRAM and max = 3xRAM ; RAM size in MB.
Also it is normal for OAS to use more CPU when Running Graphics Intensive Games and Steam based Games as well. This is because more files and Data being trnsferred to the operating memory..!
