    McAfee Agent Backwards Compatibility Service

      Hello All,

       

      Just looking for some documentation of the Backwards Compatibility Service that gets installed with the McAfee Agent. We are running agent 5.0.2.132 with HIPS 8.0 Patch 6 and VSE 8.8.0.1445 Patch 6. I think this service is for older agents to be able to communicate to a new 5 ePO but can't seem to get concrete documentation on this. I want to uninstall this service or disable because it is eating up a substantial amount of CPU on all of our virtual desktops with or without anyone logged in. This service has no effect over HIPs or VSE from what I can gather, but want to make sure before pulling it. Let me know, thanks...
