His mother was a professional politician in Santa Fe, New Mexico where he spent many summers fishing the Pecos River and attending the Santa Fe Opera. He was educated through high school and junior college at New Mexico Military Institute, and was commissioned as second lieutenant in the Infantry. He served with the 8th Special Forces Group in South America (Ft. Gulick, CZ) and 5th Special Forces Group in Vietnam. He has a BA in English from University of Texas-El Paso and an MA in Education Administration from Western Carolina University, Cullowhee, North Carolina.

Is McAfee causing my poor browser performance?
I decided it was time to run a McAfee full scan yesterday. This began at about 11am and other than this scan the laptop was idle. I have run full scans before on this laptop that have taken a while but nothing like this. Have any other plusnet users had similar issues or does anyone have any suggestions to what the problem may be? Secure Deletion You could also do a "Registry Cleaner" Yes there are people who don't get on with McAffee on these forums, and use something else and will suggest alternatives.

McAfee full scan
McAfee's antivirus software comes with plenty of functions and features, but this plethora of options can cause problems on some computers, especially older ones. McAfee offers the ability to scan your computer and update automatically, but these operations take up RAM and bandwidth, giving you less power to work with. McAfee can also slow your computer if it isn't built to handle it; if you have an older machine, it might not meet its system requirements. McAfee scans your computer automatically, which saves you having to keep on top of it yourself. By default, McAfee scans once a week, but it doesn't politely wait until later if it sees you're busy; it starts scanning on schedule every week, even if you're working. Scans use a lot of your RAM and processor power, which can drastically slow down anything you're trying to do. To alleviate this issue, set the automatic scans for a time when you're asleep or away, or disable it completely but don't forget to scan your computer occasionally.
