Since no one else is reporting this problem, it's likely to be something specific to your PC - My advice, uninstall, run MCPR, and install again?
Having same problem!
I noticed problems loading web pages and very bad response times using a hosted application (via citrix). Did the same trouble shooting steps as above, as well as watched resource monitor to identify McCSPServiceHost.exe is trying to talk to anaytics.ccs.mcafee.com. Link is a slowish DSL Link (1.2Mbps up, 330Kbps down), and the process seems to bury the upload. Ping times went from 55ms to 1500ms. Then a Google search brought me here.
McAfee came with computer (Dell laptop) so I don't have install disks per above, etc. Also, that seems kinda drastic.
Anybody have a solution?
You never reinstall from a disk. Use the online account.
Malware can cause the above problem as McAfee should never interfere with an internet connection under normal conditions.
Check for malware using Malwarebytes Free from the following link: Anti-Spyware/Malware/Hijacker Tools
It checks for some types of malware that regular antiviruses don't always cover.
Been on phone with MaAfee since I posted.
After I finally convinced them what was going on, they downloaded and ran a scan tool of some sort - it showed no problems. Tech gave up, told me to call the corporate number for support. Corporate says they can't work on it
The link I posted gives lots of hi8nts and links to help with possible malware. It certainly looks like malware to me.
If you can't run a scan at least follow the Hijackthis suggestions to enlist the help of an expert malware removal forum.
By the way, you can't disable data upload using the consumer software unless you put that machine's firewall in lockdown, then no traffic at all will get in or out, rendering it basically useless for Internet purposes.
You could re-contact Technical Support and escalate the issue to a higher level.
Business Portal can't help with consumer software being used, even in a Business environment.
