I am running Windows 8.1. I have Mcafee Total protection installed. I have notice that there is multiple instances of the following 2 processes running:
When I say multiple I means about a dozen of each. My system is extremely slow.
Is this normal
It's not uncommon for multiple instances of what appear to be similar processes showing up in Task Manager, although personally I see neither of the above.
It would vary from person to person depending on what modules are active.
A screenshot of that might be in order.
Or contact Technical Support as they can probably give you a more concrete answer.
I am also experiencing this. I have high C.P.U. usage down to WMI Provider Host. There are lots of error associated with this which relate back via their Process IDs to MCAfee. I then noticed many instances of McAfee. particularly the ENT and INSTRU.exe I tried to run the Virtual Technician tool (from https://service.mcafee.com/webcenter/portal/cp?_afrLoop=2201295016209577#!%40%40%3F_afrLoop%3D220129... ) but the installation failed with an error
Microsoft JScript runtime error '800a01a8'
Object required /mvt/InstallerError.asp, line 118
