    McAfee Security Updates


      My McAfee Security Suite wants to check and download updates several times a day.   This is annoying as it slows my computer down when it is doing so.  To check several times a day is overkill....but I don't see a way to adjust this other than turning the feature off.  Does anyone know how to change this?

                    The software generally polls for updates every four hours. However there is a known issue with it Hanging, if you will (Displaying a spinning arrow) and is expected to have a fix soon. Generally you can open your McAfee UI>Check for updates and it will eventually stop the polling.
