Web advisor slowing Chrome

I've been using Web Advisor for years but something happened in the past 2 weeks. Many chrome pages load very slowly where it seems like the ads within the pages take forever to load which causes the page to freeze. At first I didn't think it had anything to do with Web Advisor but when I turned off the extension within Chrome it immediately fixed the issue

Anyone else have the same issue or can tell me why this all of a sudden happened?

Re: Web advisor slowing Chrome

I started experiencing the same issue. It brought my entire system to its knees while chrome was open. I thought I had a virus, restarted my pc twice and continued to face the issue where I literally could not have google chrome running. One of the devs at mcafee seriously screwed up the code somewhere and there seems to be a memory leak or something. I was seeing massive spikes in CPU usage caused by the mcafee chrome extension. Disabling the extension resulted in everything going back to normal and more importantly, allowing me to use chrome again.

I noticed a real slowdown in chrome over the last couple of weeks. I did a full reset on chrome and everything was fine. Once I turned webadvisor back on, webpages were really slow to load again.... Goodbye webadvisor. And if not resolved soon, goodbye to McAfee.

Same with me.  I've been having major memory leak issues with Chrome for a while.  The moment I disabled webadvisor, I'm back to normal.


McAfee.  Please fix this ASAP.  It's totally unacceptable that this extension is such a problem
