McAfee

By jacky1tech ·
We have setup McAfee anti-virus to handle all virus situations. I now have systems hanging up on boot up or slowing down/stopping during programs. Is McAfee the cause?

If the problems started after installing McAfee then it could be the problem
Trouble-shoot by clicking on Start,Run,type in MSCONFIG in the box,click on Startup tab and uncheck the box next to the McAfee in startup,Reboot and see if the problem is still there
You can configure McAfee not to load at startup,and also configure it so that it will not scan files at start up,the hanup could be caused by McAfee scanning all files and programs at startup.
Check to make sure that you have the latestupdates to definition files.

You also want to be sure you uninstalled the previous anti-virus you had, if applicable. Norton and McAfee don't mix together.
