Spotify & McAfee conflict

I've recently started using (or trying to use) Spotify again but found everytime I start the program mcshield process takes a huge amount of CPU resouce and Spotify fails to run. Disabling real time scanning and the firewall makes everything better so obviously some conflict with Spotify and McAfee.

Any suggestions how to resolve this?

Thanks

The problem seems to have gone away now - both programs behaving normally. This was the first time I'd used a new install of Spotify - possibly something to do with initial Spotify cache setup? Will post again if the problem re-occurs.
