In my case, the versions all stayed the same.
Version 14.0 Rel. 14.0 R12
Version 15.3 Build 15.3.3061
EDIT: After a computer restart, the AnalyticsSDK was running, but only for a few minutes. It appears it is being shut down by McAfee after running for a short time.
bought a new laptop few weeks ago and thought it would be good to install a fresh new virus protector. Completely blocks my computer. CPU usage around 30% by AnalyticsSDK; No internet possible anymore and even blocks using Word. How can I get rid of my McAfee Internet Security. It doesn't want to open up and do anything. Cant reach internet to de-install. Also removal doesn't work.
regards from a very unhappy McAfee user.
Well, overnight ClientAnalytics was started, and whatever happens to the service happened. No internet this morning, and McAfee would not open. I could not force close the service, and it was using only 1.1 meg of memory and little to no CPU. Whatever happens seems to hang the ClientAnalytics service.
I had to restart the computer to be able to get McAfee to open. I use the computer for work, so I have had to uninstall for now.
Believe me, I am quite aware of that workaround. It seemed though that I had received an update which was turning off ClientAnalytics on it's own. It would run for a minute or two at startup, then close. It was working great.
Overnight the service started but locked up, freezing my browsers and McAfee UI. That's all I was saying.
I uninstalled as I am going to wait until the new LAM version is released, or until a sure fix is issued.
- very wise I think. As for me, I am refusing all upgrades from McAfee until the mods on here tell me that the "fix" has been sent out. This is just in case what you have described happens to me. My PC has been working as normal since I disabled the Services and although I'm aware that I may be vulnerable to new viruses by not installing McAfee updates, I'd rather take that risk than have an unusable PC like I had 3 weeks ago. My laptop with Windows XP is still running fine without the recent McAfee updates!
I just this minute received a Mcafee Antivirus Plus update that included new versions of McClientAnalytics.exe, McClientAnalytics.dll, and ModuleAnalyticsProxy.dll. The new files have version number 126.96.36.199 (vs. the problematic version 188.8.131.52). Also, the ClientAnalyticsService changed its startup type back to Manual and the process AnalyticsSDK process is occasionally running, but also stops on its own (and does not appear to get stuck stopping).
So this is likely the emergency update. I'll leave the service enabled and we shall see if this update finally fixes this insidious bug.
I have McAfee automatic updates turned on but have not received version 184.108.40.206 yet (I still have version 220.127.116.11). Frankprindle, did you have to do anything special or different to receive it?
