Re: Endpoint Security console does not open and PowerShell interface hangs

I am user of McAfee Endpoint Security 10.7.0.

The problem is that my Powershell scripts are hung randomly at start. Simple code examples to repeat this situations are:
for /l %x in (1, 1, 100) do powershell.exe 'echo %x' - for CMD
for ($i=0; $i -le 100; $i=$i+1) {invoke-expression "powershell.exe 'echo $i'"} - for PowerShell
Moreover starting CMD from PowerShell or runnung Powershell commands in one session doesn't hang any process.

I have installed 10.7.0 February 2021 KB82450 with next component versions:
Endpoint Security Platform
Adaptive Threat Protection
Threat Prevention
Web Control
All these components have "None" in "Hotfix number" and "Patch version" fields.

I hoped that Adaptive Threat Protection patch for issue ENSW-108097 will resolve my problem, but it doesn't. This issue has next description: "Resolves a deadlock in McAfee® Endpoint Security Adaptive Threat Protection (ATP) when Story Graph feature is enabled. Side effects of this deadlock are PowerShell not running, McAfee® Endpoint Security console not opening and so on".
Switching off the Story Graph Feature and/or disabling ATP with successive Windows restart had no effect on the problem.
My OS type is: 64-bit Windows 10 Pro 20H2 with build 19042.804. Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0
