some one please help about this
Ok first some general questions
1. What version of Mcafee and what programs components are installed?
2. What is your Operating system xp service pak ? Win7 etc and System specs ie CPU and ram
3 What are your slow examples opening Programs/booting etc?
I am using Mcafee total protection latest version.
Win xp sp2 and 4GB ram
After installed mcafee its running slow.
I Noticed that when i turned off real time scanning in normal mode comptuer is running faster.
I tried in SMWN and DSRM it seems to be working fine.
So the problem with Mcafee Real time scanning.
And also checked with syslog dump and noticed that real time scan issue.
Yes there seems to be a xp speed issue but mine manifests itself as slowing due to floppy accessing whereas others have issues with no floppy. We mods brought up this issue in our weekly call and the techs now know of it and will need I assume to call some users to get logs etc.
What cpu a P4 is it single or hyper threaded or a dual core the former is not the best to run Mcafee on.
Dont say cp speed issue, I am using ethereal tool and syslog to trace which packets are stopping these and slow down the comptuer and found that problem with only mcafee real time scan.
I3 never have an issue I feel it is XP and real time scanning Mcafee will investigate the cause as mentioned they are only now finding out about it. What is strange mine runs fine on an e6600 and 2 gb ram as long as the floppy is disabled.
I will keep this thread updated
I assume as I mentioned it and you did not comment that you do not have a floppy?
Hey i found the solution for real time scanning in syslog tool let me try.
