Microsoft security Essentials Runs continously RRS feed

  • Question

  • MSE runs continuously, uses 50 to 60% of my CPU and forces my hard drives to run at a high speed. I have scanned all discs and set the CPU limit at 10%.  How can I get my computer back with out uninstalling MSE?

    I guess you have real-time protection enabled? Is the icon in the taskbar green at all?
