4 computers VERY slow

By caser85 ·
Ok, last night all computers were fine. I come in this morning, and the server and three other computers are running so slow that I can't even access files or run apps. I think it might be a virus. I have McAfee and it updates automatically. All theother computers on the network are fine. Any ideas?

If your McAfee data files updated with a new dat file release and you are running an early McAfee engine (4.0.2) your problem may have been caused by a corrupt download.

This was the problem. After McAfee updated in the middle of the night, it screwed 4 computers up. The ones affected were the computers with the 4.0.2 version. All others were unaffected. I think I'm going to switch to Norton. I can't believe oneprogram shut down my system for that long. Thanks for the help!

I have seen Mcafee miss virus before, especially a number of loveletter variants. Try opening task manager to see which processes are using up the CPU and Memory. you should be able to kill the offending process.
