McSvHost.exe 50% resources

Posting this as a service to anyone who has found the 12-12-2012 update left your PC with McSvHost.exe running constantly, using 50% of your CPU resouces.

mcscriptfix.exe is a patch which will correct (at least one of) the buggy download/auto install problems this install left behind.

I had to go to Thahir Mohamed in Thailand (Live Chat) in order to find this out.  McAfee did not notify customers.

What other bugs are in my product that have fixes I am not aware of? Does it have to get unbearable before I research and take a day trying to solve a problem?  Is it standard policy for people to have to do a clean uninstall and re-install after updates?  Was this problem even fixed in the current install product??
