McAfee email scanning add-on for Outlook

Good Morning,

I have problems with the Outlook client because of an error on the McAfee email scanning add-on, the Windows events viewer shows me the following:

Outlook has disabled the following add-ons:

ProgID: mfeotlkaddin.scan
GUID: {6D51AC3F-7048-4C0F-9831-18E4F701EF86}
Name: McAfee email scanner add-on
Description: Outlook add-on for McAfee email scanning
Charge behavior: 3
HKLM: 1 \ Location: c: \ windows \ syswow64 \ mfeotlkaddin.dll
Threshold of time (milliseconds): 1000
Time needed (milliseconds): 1422
Reason for disabling: This add-on causes Outlook to start slowly.
Exemption to the directive (list of allowed): 0

This error closes Outlook when the computer goes into suspension, when writing a new mail has a lot of delay when typing. It is normal for Outlook to restart.

The configuration I use:
Windows 10 Enterprise version 1703 - Outlook 2016 32 bits

Hello @DJM84

Windows 10 Enterprise isn't supported by McAfee Consumer Products. Eventhough Anti-Spam is currently functional on your machine, it is bound to have performance issues.

Please refer the article which talks about the minimum requirements to run McAfee Consumer Products.
