Mystery did my suggestion help you?
Thanks so much for your suggestion. I just unchecked "wait until my pc is idle to run scheduled tasks" setting. I am going to let the computer run and see if it acts up. I'm really hoping this is the solution!
Thanks for your response. I have both of those settings checked. Even though "minimal resources" has always been checked, the computer still slows down a lot when the scan runs. But that is likely due to the fact that the computer is fairly old and I can't blame McAfee for that. Also since the computer is a desktop, it has no choice but to scan when it is plugged in.
I will update this thread once I know if the problem has been solved.
