Hi.
I have in task manager a process with this name: "mcupdate.exe", and the os

60-70%. :| I have an Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 2.4GHz.
I read on the internet something like that: is a process associated with
McAfee Internet Security Suite, BUT i never installed on my PC McAfee or a
program what can be associated with it.

Re: CPU Usage
Hi,

First, check services.msc to see if this is loading there. Perhaps the
system was preloaded with McAfee and it was removed?

Otherwise, I'd suspect you have a virus that is masquerading using a legit
file name.

Re: CPU Usage
mcupdate.exe is Media Center Update. Same CPU usage when Media Center checks
and downloads updates is noted here.

Re: CPU Usage
MCupdate is a media center app. If you open up media
center, go to tasks>settings>general, and disable
automatic update options, it should help.
