    Windows 8.1 100% Disk usage caused by LiveSafe?

    mxsytfc

      I bought a Dell Inspiron 17R at the start of this year for my son, with McAfee LiveSafe pre-installed and paid for the subscription.

       

      It's running Windows 8.1

       

      My son has always complained that the PC freezes and when I check the system it is always because disk usage goes to 100%.  I've attempted lots of things during the year to resolve it, but the only thing I haven't tried is removing LiveSafe, which I suspect is the culprit.  I'm loathe to remove it having paid for it, but I don't feel I have any option.

       

      Is there a way to check if LiveSafe is the culprit, aside from uninstalling it?

       

      Any advice?
