My home system is a powerhouse with a 4 core 3Mhz CPU, for the non technical read Very Strong.
Two days ago I received a routine (or so I thought) update - I was wrong. The interface totally changed and MOST of the options to control the software were removed. It looked a bit like win 8 (I run win 7 professional 64 bit). The new version started to "pulse" the CPU from 0 to 40% alternating every second. I'm sure that was it (as shown to the tech - more on that later) because I stopped the on access scan function and the phase for the scan function "mcshield" went to zero. Restart the on access scan function and it went back to pulsing between zero and 40% CPU utilization.
I called "clueless" tech support who initially told me I was looking at a non-mcafee process. He kinda reconsidered when I took over the remote session and showed it had a digital signature from McAfee. (he was surprised that I could prove him wrong) - kinda forgot to mention I did 20+ years of network support and have training and certs as microsoft certified systems engineer, trainer, etc.
The bottom line was being "kicked up" to "clueless level 2" that worthy suggested "It might use less CPU if you uninstall and reinstall" - of course that requires a reboot and gets rid of the pesky client who is not easily fed the standard BS. BTW: that call lasted 1 hour 20 min (yeccch).
That said - I am considering Bitdefender and Kaspersky and F-secure.Read more ›
As opposed to spending an extra $120 on the recovery of a poor product I bought Kaspersky antivirus which immediately removed the virus. The bad news is that because the virus damaged McAfee, I am not able to unistall it (which McAfee tech support is also unable to assist with) so I am stuck with the disabled corpse of McAfee, which I refer to as McAfee Total Infection. Kaspersky is much less taxing on system resources than McAfee also.
*A note about McAfee Tech support: you can get a good idea of what their support is like by reading the moderators comments in the forums on the McAfee website. You will quickly notice a trend where every problem without a easy solution is blamed on windows---but windows is working fine, its McAfee that does not work. A quick google search will show how common this uninstall problem is, and there is no solution.
I tried all the means to install it, but no luck.
Even McAfee Tech support tried it 10-12 times, but couldn't figure out, whey its not installing.
It more then a month and McAfee Tech support don't have answer.
For Windows 7, it did install, but I used to get "Real Time Scanning - Off" message.
After couple of sessions with McAfee Tech Support, they were able to resolve it.
Again here, there was no way for me to know, what causing "Real Time Scanning" to go Off.
Don't waste your time & money...Go for OTHER antivirus program.
