I have a .cmd script running on Windows 7(64-bit) that executes over 20x slower when real-time scanning is on.
On an older machine running XP there is an insignificant difference. As a result I wish to find out if
this difference is due to how McShield interacts with Windows 7 as opposed to XP or
whether it may just be a problem with how my Windows 7 and McAfee are configured.
As a result I have written a small command script that displays the start time then loops 1000x
setting a variable value, and when finished displays the final variable value and finish time.
I would greatly appreciate it if anyone with with a Windows 7, preferrably a 64-bit, system
could execute the attached script (TimeTest.cmd) with real-time scanning on and then with real-time scanning off
and either confirm or refute the difference in execution times.
On my systen without scanning execution is around 0.75s but with scanning it is around 18s.
I think I have solved the problem.
I re-installed McAfee and now there is no appreciable difference between running the script with scanning off or on.
