McAfee Antivirus Stopped but...

Post by dgmckenzie » Fri Apr 17, 2020 11:59 pm


I stopped McAfee Antivirus (& other apps) last weekend as I've been having Processor / Memory excessive usage.

However just noticed that McAfee Antivirus is using 32.9% CPU and 316.0MB Memory.

Also I originally had it running after midnight, before stooping the app.

Any thoughts ?

How did you stop McAfee?

Does it appear as stopped now?

Have you tried uninstalling the McAfee app?
RAID have never ever been a replacement for backups. Without backups on a different system (preferably placed at another site), you will eventually lose data!

A non-RAID configuration (including RAID 0, which isn't really RAID) with a backup on a separate media protects your data far better than any RAID-volume without backup.

All data storage consists of both the primary storage and the backups. It's your money and your data, spend the storage budget wisely or pay with your data!
