McAfee - Mc Shield problem cpu running 100%

  tommyturbo 18:41 23 Jan 2005

Hi all,

Today I had a problem with my McAfee spamkiller which was resolved with online help from McAfee. I was insrructed to update my version and it worked. Simple.....

Later todat my PC became VERY slow so I looked in my task manager and found that McShield.exe was using almost 100% of my CPU leaving my PC useless. After about an hour or so it just stops and everything returns to normal.

I cannot back in touch with McAfee surrport for what ever reason and I have found myself a bit stuffed.

I have run Spybot and all my McAfee programs and found no problem there.

Probably best thing to try first is uninstall it completely then re-install it again. See if that makes any difference.

This sounds very much like a problem I had a couple of months back. in the end I had to download a hot fix from McAfee as my system started to crash click here
hope this works and takes you to the tread as it's the first time i've tried setting up a link

Thanks for the advice. I have uninstalled the McAfee package and every thing ok. Will re install and see what happens.

Thanks again.
