Very high McAfee cpu usage

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad 110S and ever since installing windows update McAfee management services has been using 95% of my cpu, I have checked and there is no virus on my laptop, why is it doing this and how do I stop it doing this as my laptop is now unusable

you need to get rid of the av and use something else , I use Kaspersky , I got 90 day trial on 1 pc and dumped it because a guy at work gave me a copy of my companies cad software , MacAfee found nothing but because I am a geek I also scanned it with antimalware bytes , the program found about a dozens nasties each made up of several segments ... I rest my case.

I showed my pal the infection report but we cant tell the boss the pc's are infected as he would want to know how we found out , I feel the job centre would have been round the next corner.
