McAfee and Toad...

Hello,

We have a user that is experiencing problems with McAfee and Toad version 10.5. When loading and closing Toad it takes a very long time and you can see that the McAfee process sparks of for this duration. I have added the following:

VirusScan Enterprise 8.7.0 > On-Access Default Processes Policies > My Default

But this still does not solve the issue. Anything else I can do?

Your help is much appreciated!

Re: McAfee and Toad...

You may have to use process monitor to see what mcafee is scanning. - Check McAfee Knowlegebase for instructions on how to use it

If you simply can't figure the procmon out and have lost all hope.. You could try using the on-access statistic window..

Double click the mcafee virus scan icon (instead of right-clicking to bring up the console) it brings up the On-Access scan statistics windows. With some luck you can "catch" what the on-access scanner is scanning. - But this method puts you real close to one of those end-users.

Good luck

Re: McAfee and Toad...

McAfee profiler might also help determine what is occuring.

Re: McAfee and Toad...

Excellent tip mjmurra,

I have asked McAfee for some time to develop a tool to do just this..

and to think they just release one.!

I am in the process of evaluting this tool..

Again,, Excellent tip

Re: McAfee and Toad...

We had the same issue with Toad taking a looong time to load. We created the exclusion folder path exclusion in the On-Access Default Processes Policies too but that wasn't working.

After a bit of process monitoring a colleague found that toad was "calling" explorer.exe which is a high-risk process (we have separate low and high-risk on-access process policies).

We added the %programfiles%\QuestSoftware\ exclusion to the On-Access High-Risk Processes Policies and that did the trick for us.

Regards,

Bob

Great stuff! The user now reports that Toad works fine. I'm not sure which change has done it as I implemented a few but you will all get some points. Thanks guys!

Re: McAfee and Toad...

There's a KB article up now regarding 10.5.1.3

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB70663

The recommendation is to exempt toad.exe only (or install an extra.dat which I assume prevents VSE from scanning toad.exe)
