    Why is McAfee not caching the DAT file in memory?


      We are using VirusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware Enterprise 8.8 with scan engine 5700.7163 and DAT version 7929.000

      My laptop was blowing a lot during the last hour so i checked what was happening. I discovered that McAfee is responsible for this cause.

      When the McAfee on demand scan is running is see that the mcshield process is reading the DAT file a lot on different locations in the file. But why does it not cache this 70 MB file in memory? My guess would be that it will perform much faster.


      A small capture of the actions:
