Many users have posted about this but this CPU usage spike is unbearable. Is there any solution for it ? Even when the system is idle my CPU spikes up the resources and I can hear the sound of fans and the whole system gets heated up.
McAfee is acting like the same as a cryptominer would.
Since last night that it is happening to me too…
In the past, my total CPU load was about 5% or so, and now it is almost 20%.
Windows 11 23H2, i7-9th gen, 6-core, 32 GB RAM.
Is there a fix planned?
