This is a Legitimate McAfee Process. Please observe the following:Malware scan of McPltCmd.exe (Platform) 521ddf8bc7823e64b72cf217c03fad664fc5c1b0 - herdProtect
Should you still feel concerned. I recommend you run the Latest McAfee Getsusp Tool.Please remember to enter your Email address under "Preferences" before scanning. This Superb Tool can be located in the following Link:
Thanks catdaddy, appreciate the assist. I knew it was a legitimate McAfee process. I'm trying to understand why I have so many of these hung processes. I can't stop the hung processes except by rebooting the computer. After reboot the McPltCmd processes slowly begin to accumalate again. Looking for solution that doesn't require reboots.
I see, then try running the latest MVT and see if if detects any issues.http://mvt.mcafee.com/mvt/en-us/downloadindex.html
Short of a Uninstall/Reinstall you can always contact Technical Support 24/7
Should you determine a need to Uninstall/Reinstall here are the guidelines:
Please make certain you are current and up to date with all Windows Updates, to include Internet Explorer. McAfee and other programs depend on it to function properly.
Wishing you all the very best,
You,re perfectly welcome. Just a thought, this being a (Installation Process) have you had a recent Update occur,or received a (Prompt) indicating so?
I haven't been prompted to update, but there are 4 hung mcupdate processes. Just completed the MVT install and scan. Detected and fixed a registry problem.
By opening your McAfee UI, is it (Green) and says "Your computer is secure"?
Are your Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware definitions current?
I am running the 13.6 xxx Version of McAfee Total Protection. The Engine Version is (2022.0) 9/24/2014
Are you still experiencing the same issues?
Yes, McAfee UI is green and says "Your computer is secure".
Took me a few minutes to find the Version info...
Total Protection Version/Build 13.6.1138 Last update: 8/26/2014 (probably because mcupdate is hanging)
Anti-Virus and Anti Spyware Version/Build 17.6.394 Last Update 8/31/2014 Engine Version 1998.0
I would recommend (Forcing a Update) by disabling Temporarily disabling Access Protection. However, since it has been that long since you have been updated. (Which could explain the duplicating Processes) I would Either contact Technical Support, or if you feel comfortable doing so.
Would do a Clean Uninstall/Reinstall. Having said this, please make certain you have (Automatic Updates enabled).
When is the last time you ran a full scan? Please go to the link I inserted (Anti-Spyware and Hi-jacking ) and Download and run Malwarebytes (Free) Do not accept the Free Trial/or Activate...to get a second opinion, before you continue to either contact Technical Support/or perform the Uninstall/Reinstall yourself.
Please post back your results.
