I'm running 7.2.47 on a Lenovo Win 10 laptop (i5 3rd Gen, 4GB ram 120Gb SSD)
The computer has idle periods (overnight) when the tasks can run interrupted, and other tasks including MCM1 are running, and completing, at the same time.

Btw, I've got 5 years of run time under my belt, and process tasks on a regular basis.

I have 2 MCM tasks which are now on over 100 hours Elapsed time each
MCM1_0138750_3515_1
MCM1_0138740_5027_0

These are both high priority tasks now, but they seem stuck on the percentage task completed.

for the 750_3515 task, checking the properties it says that it has only used a CPU time of 2:38:54 against an estimated 8:21:09.

current elapsed time for this task is 102:44:06 with an estimated additional time of 24:41:09.

will these tasks complete or are they destined to be aborted?

I have checked the event log and there are no errors relating to these tasks.

Think I've fixed this.

I stopped and restarted the client, and the elapsed time has "reset" itself back to something a bit more normal.

Shame I lose all those points :(

Also, Check settings for :
% of processors used
% of time processors used.

When I rebuild a disk, I sometimes forget about these.
