  • If MSMPENG is causing your PC to slow down, the most likely reason is that there is a conflict with other security software on your PC. This exe file/process is the malware protection engine used by both OneCare and Windows Defender.

    If you are unable to identify the cause - usually another antivirus or antispyware program running - please contact OneCare support.
