Windows 7 Pro x64
Core 2 Quad Q9550 [at] 3.4GHz
4GB DDR2 Ram
I’m running CIS 5.3.176757.1236 with ONLY D+ and Firewall installed, no AV. I also have Microsoft Security Essentials installed, and use that as my antivirus as I have had poor experiences with Comodo’s AV previously.
Security Essentials Version: 2.0.657.0
Antimalware Client Version: 3.0.8107.0
Engine Version: 1.1.6502.0
Antivirus definition: 1.97.1582.0
Antispyware definition: 1.97.1582.0
Network Inspection System Engine Version: 2.0.5854.0
Network Inspection System Definition Version: 22.214.171.124
Sometimes I notice my CPU usage spikes up to 25% (quad core) and the culprit is cfp.exe.
I game quite a lot and when cfp eats my first core like that, ANY game running bogs down and becomes unplayable. It only happens for short bursts, but it should not be happening in the first place.
cfp also eats 25% CPU when I run my weekly virus scan with MSE, so I think it is getting caught up trying to check all the file reads by MSE.
Hell, as I write this, cfp is using CPU:
I have checked for remnants of old antiviruses (AVG9) and can find nothing. I do not have Sandbox enabled. I have tried running in game mode, that picture I took was in game mode. I have a trial of NetLimiter 3 running in the background, as well as FRAPS, Steam, XFire, and MSI Afterburner.
EDIT: I also mainly leave D+ and the firewall in training mode so I don’t have endless popups.
