Startup Optimization

Any chance we can get the tuning option back on Real-Time Scanning to reduce system impact at startup? McAfee appears to be running a Quick Scan at each startup since a recent patch.

Note, I'm not referring to the Startup Settings under General Settings and Alerts, which remains there, has always been enabled on my PC, and does not seem to help. There was another setting under Real-Time Scanning that was removed that would reduce the high Disk activity at startup (confirmed with support on 11/25/2017). I'd be fine with an additional option being in Startup Settings, which makes more sense than in Real-Time Scanning. Regardless, just stop this unrequested scan at startup across all disks.
