Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

Hello, so far it looks like McAfee does not help much on this crazy issue. You can see that the original message is as old as October 2017 when a similar 'post-it' was written on the original issue :

Also look at the answer I wrote then. I am still using it and it works on my Acer Laptop :

I found this completely resolved the issue for me. Thanks peacekeeper

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

Seriously I am surprised as I thought this was more a clash not a corrupted install.  I thought others reinstalled before but maybe the 16.0.R6 new install has something in it that helps.

Will look further.

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

So maybe someone else can try the uninstall reinstall path cleaning the disk as mentioned there as well and see if that helps?

Interesting you mention corrupted install. When I first uninstalled and tried to reinstall I couldn't do it because the reinstall kept failing. It needed the MCPR wipe to fix it. A sign my install was corrupted maybe?

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

That Is possible could explain but 30+ getting the same corruption causing same issues is strange. Will see if reinstalling helps others. Sounds like it has been ok for a few days.

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

I did re-install the way it was instructed (after cleaning up the remnants with MCPR etc).   After that incidence of McAfee Management Service Host using CPU beyond 80% has come down drastically,  thought it happened once. immediately after re-installing. Things are quieter thereafter.

Re: McAfee Management Service host - VERY HIGH CPU USAGE

So what is it running at now? Mine at 0% cpu 46,764K memory
