When You installed Mcafee did you have another AV installed prior to it. If so you need to run its own removal software prior to installing Mcafee. That is1 possibility.
What are your CPU specs if low scans can run at high cpu. Mine seem to sit on 41% this on an original I7975 cpu.
Hi Peacekeeper. The laptop had a trial version of McAfee for 30 days installed with it.
When I installed the full version of McAfee, the trial version was automatically uninstalled by the full version (I got a message that said it was doing so). Do you think some remnants might still be there ?
CPU specs are Intel® Core™ i7 4510U Processor,
8 GBs Ram,
2 GB Nvidia Graphics card,
Asus TP500L laptop
Yes, I also have the "use min resources" box ticked
Hope this helps
Well if the trial was say antivirus and you installed say Total protection yes you need to uninstall via windows Programs and features followed by running MCPR the removal tool. Worth trying anyway as some installs get messed up.
Specs just ok Just joking far better than mine
