High CPU usage Mcafee 11.0


I am running a full virus scan after updating Mcafee to version 11.0 earlier today. The CPU usage is scary; mcshield.exe was and is jumping between 60% and 98% CPU usage! This did not happen until the update, and it's not like the problem is my CPU (Intel i-5 520m 2.4ghz quad core). Anyone else experiencing this? This NEEDS TO BE FIXED!
