ive stop my mcafee subscription but cannot remove mcshield.exe from me processes how do i do this
My workplace uses Mcshield. Every day about 4:30pm or so it starts up. That’s the time that I do my end of day computer work and Mcshield uses 100% of CPU so I can’t use the computer for anything else. I simply turn it off in the task manager processes, then finish my computer work. On our network, I know that it gets turned back on anyway, so I’m not too concerned. On an individual computer though, if you were to turn it off to do some computing tasks, you would not be protected completely, but you could turn it back on when you get finished with your work/play.
right click the VirusScan icon on the taskbar and click on VirusScan Console,when this opens click on Scan All Fixed Disks,when this opens click on the Advanced tab and set the slider for System utilization lower ,mine is set to 10%
My computer with vista has some problem using Mcshiel. Once every hour(not exact)this program will automaticaly run and uses up all CPU and the computer can not do anything else. Most of the time I even did not open the browser, but this program still runs. So I have to go to task manager to stop this process manaually. But once I stop the process, the system prompt me that my computer is at no protections. I don’t think virus protection software should act like this way. Is there anything wrong with my settings?(I set to scan at 2am everyday)
I will appreciate it if somebody can help.
mchsield.exe appears to slowing my computer down very much. It has my processes running at almost 100%. Is this normal and will I be safe to delet it?
