Unhappy Freezing when McAfee Scans
For the past month or so I've been having issues with McAfee. Whenever it runs a full scan the CPU usage goes up to 100% and by the time the scan is around 60% my laptop freezes up leaving only my mouse able to move. Thinking this is a virus/spyware/trojan/etc. problem i've downloaded SpyBot which has found a couple problems but besides that nothing has solved this problem.
Running a Quick Scan does not freeze up my computer.


OS: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
Version: 6.0.6002 Service Pack 2 Build 6002
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU
RAM: 4.00 GB
