    Agent - McAfee Agent Backwards Compatibility Service (macompatsvc)


      Does anyone know why this service requires so much memory? It's just starting using up to nearly 1GB on some of our servers and it causing out exchange and sql servers to struggle. Can this process/service be disabled?


      We also have problems with the McAfee Product Improvement Program Service (mctelsvc.exe) crashing on all our 2003 servers a lot. Can this process/service also be disabled too?


      Any ideas? Why does this agent require so many more processes and services? The documentation is very vague as to what these processes/services do.


      I'm highly tempted to downgrade if problems persist.


      Hope someone can help,


      Thanks in advance.
