My computer has been running slowly for a while now, and whenever I check the Windows Task Manager, it always tells me that my CPU usage is at 100 percent. Usually 96 to 99 percent of it is allotted to MPFAgent.exe, and the remaining few percentages is given to my other programs. Can anybody tell me what MPFAgent is, and if I need it? If I do, is there a way to make it use less resources?

I don't remember where I got it from though. I don't have McAfee installation disks, and I don't remember if it came with the computer or if I downloaded it at four in the morning in a desperate attempt to clean up my computer and stop more spyware from coming in...
