Re: McAfee Cloud AV high memory usage

Dear Edward,

I have got the same problems as described by lots of other users for months now. Is there any help? Why doesn't McAfee solve the problem of high CPU usage generally? After two days 98% of CPU usage caused by McAfee cloud AV. Without any help from McAfee I will have to remove McAfee although paid for a longer time already.

Where is the solution? Please send it to me as well, or I'll need to change programs and delete McAfee.

It could be just my case, but when I tried below actions, the symtom got calmed.

1. Re-install McAfee Livesafe using uninstaller tool

2. Move Pagefile.sys


I hope it helps.

Re: McAfee Cloud AV high memory usage

HI Mcafee, any solution to this highly irritating issue? i been experiencing this regularly and the only solution is to uninstall and reinstall - there has to be a better solution than this no?

i've seen a few post and but nothing from McAfee, an acknowledgement would be good, no?


Thank you
