Mcmscsvc.exe Description :

McAfee Integrated Security Program User Manager (MISP User Manager). We do not currently know what this program does although we think that its only purpose is to ensure that McAfee works properly if you logoff from your PC and log back in as a different user without completely shutting down and rebooting. The above notwithstanding, at the time of writing, 5-Apr-2007, this program is, put simply, a disaster on too many PCs, whether it is 50% to 99% CPU utilization, complete freezes of the PC for a minute or so, or, occasionally, permanent freezing. Put simply : it is antivirus software behaving like a virus !

Mcmscsvc.exe Recommendation :

As we do not currently know what this task does, we cannot recommend outright that you disable this service. That said, whenever we have ourselves had a user experiencing this problem, we have stopped the service on the Services tab of TUT and, so far, this has not prevented McAfee from running properly till the end of that particular Windows session. We are still testing but, in the meantime, you may want to experiment with this method if you are experiencing problems with this task.

Quite separately regularly update your McAfee software with manual updates so that you can pick up program updates and not just virus definition updates - McAfee is bound to be working on the problem !
