Slow startup and logon with Virusscan 8.7

We have recently upgraded the Virusscan 8.7 and all computers are now suffering extremely bad startup times and logons.

Has anyone got any solutions for speeding up the startup after installing this version of virus scan or is the only option to return to 8.5?

Most are returning to VS 8.5i for the time being..or until the first patch comes out.

Hope this helps.

In the Eventlog you will find a crypt32 error. McAfee points to this:

Our proxy requires authentication so the proxycfg appears not to work.

We disabled automatic root certificate updates globally through group policy as it fails through our restrictive proxy anyway. This barely improve the performance of the computers.

8.7 has crippled the computers it was installed on.
