my hardrive is contiusly in use by the file mcnasvc.exe and/or mcmscsvc.exe which makes the PC run like crap. (this file has something to do with it, but i know its McAfee 2007)
when i disable it the pc runs great...

i'm told it shouldn't be disabled but i can't have it running i don't know if there is anybody else having this problem....

so i'm not sure what to do...

never had problems with 2006 mcafee....

mcnasvc.exe = McAfee Network Agent - required to run on startup

mcmscsvc.exe = McAfee Services

Although McAfee is as good as any other well known anti-virus program, it has become a resource hog that slows down your system especially if on dial-up or if installed on older systems without much RAM/slow CPU. McAfee requires numerous services and more than a dozen running files that use a lot of memory. Further McAfee products, like Symantec, are becoming difficult to remove. You may want to consider switching to another anti-virus program. See BC's Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps.

in my case running XP MEdia Center (Professional almost) soon to be Vista Home Premium as i'm upgrading....

Pentium D 2.8ghz
1GB ram
256 graphics (apparently it suppors Areo Theme which Vista Upgrade Adviser states)
160GB hardrive

so another 1GB ram be helpful, probably for Vista, well i can take 4GB all up.....

i will contact McAfee about the problem as they may or may not have a fix.....

McAfee isn't as bad as NORTON....
