What is mcods.exe doing on my computer?
mcods.exe is a process belonging to McAfee VirusScan which protects your computer against Internet-bound threats such as spyware and trojans which can be distributed through e-mail or attack directly to the computer allowing unauthorized access to your computer.
It is required for the proper operation of the antivirus programme so it should not be deleted.
Non-system processes like mcods.exe originate from software you installed on your system. Since most applications store data in your system's registry, it is likely that over time your registry suffers fragmentation and accumulates invalid entries which can affect your PC's performance. It is recommended that you check your registry to identify slowdown issues.
