Normally email scanning unchecked works well have you got instant messaging unchecked as well?. seems i need to instal;l this on my wife's pc as the beta 13.0 works fine with tb24.1
Yup still have the issue... seems associated to the amount of mail held by Thunderbird. Running all the latest versions of McAfree Security Centre & Thunderbird on Windows 8.1.
If turn off real time gets better. But then open to risks so dealing with a nasty Trojan.
Disabling email scanning is the workaround usually that way RTS still scans the files when you open the attachments.
If RTS off and still an issue well that is a new ball game. I suppose remove Mcafee and see if issue still there it could be Thunderbird itself that is the issue for you.
McAfee and Thunderbird were both fresh installs on new computer. I reformatted and installed fresh system.
Also, per unchecking RTS seems like Jonathan was infected with a trojan as a result of unchecking....
I did a log session with you, what was the result of the data analysis that you collected?
I've exactly the same problems as experienced by all. My productivity was down for 2 days, reinstalled TB, compact folders, etc, until I decided to switch off RTS, and it solves my problems. TB version is 24.1.1, Mcafee info is below. Crap Mcafee software, caused me so much pain.
My thunderbird is 24.1.1, Mcafee is
just disable email attachment scanning works and safer though I am on 24.1.1 and all fine. Ok I am on the beta Mcafee 13.0 so better do a test tomorrowon 21/11/13 6:01:18 EST AM
