Setting OneCare Virus Scanning executable - MsMpEng.exe - to Above Normal Priority enabled fast virus scans RRS feed

  • General discussion


    I used the Symantec Process Viewer tool (from their older Systemworks product) to set the priority for MsMpExe.exe service to "Above Normal" priority, and now the scan is running at full speed.


    I installed WLOC version 2 from the onset, and had the slow virus scanning problem from the beginning.  I set the priority on the above file, and the background scan (not the virus scan in TuneUp yet) is running very fast.
