One of my licenses of McAfee Internet Security is running in a laptop which has very old software and hardware. The laptop runs OK when McAfee is de-activated but, for obvious security reasons, I prefer browsing the network with an antivirus installed and running.
The performance issue is specially noticeable when updating the virus definition database or performing a scheduled scan, since McAfee uses all the phisical memory of the computer. I've tried to upgrade computer memory, but it would overheat the laptop.
Is there a way to tell Mcafee to use less memory when scanning or updating?
I found this issue is usual with corporate products, and your knowledge base gives some info about it. But I found no solution for home products.
I found you sell antivirus software for mini-laptops (netbooks) with reduced memory. Are these products compatible with old processors (i.e. not ARM but pentium-class-Intel?
You're going to stop support for McAfee 2008 soon. My old computer can run McAfee 2009, but it won't run McAfee 2010. What the scheduled end-of-life for McAffee 2009?
