    McAfee constantly updating and scanning...

    tobyanderson

      I have been using the 'much loved' McAfee for a couple of years now as I have never experienced the problems others have described.  Until now.  I have had this subscription for about half a year and it has been fine, then randomly it has started constantly 'Checking for Updates' and running a full computer scan hogging all my CPU.  It completely ignores any sort of schedule and the updates continue even if I turn them off.  I didn't find much of this problem when I looked it up, but someone did say that it is possible that a virus has attached itself to my McAfee. Is this possible?

      I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and that didn't help.  If this continues I will remove McAfee and get some free software.

      Thanks in advance
