cygwin extremely slow when McAffe Endpoint security is active

I'm using Cygwin on my Win 10 laptop.
But some commands are incredible slow if McAffe Endpoint security v 10.5 is active.
E.g. starting a cygwin window (mintty -) will take about 15-18 secs.
executing  bash -l will take about 12 secs.
each execution of man command will take about 10 - 12 secs
When disabled all of the above take about 1 sec or less.
In addition during execution of above commands McAfee processes (mcshield.exe and mfeatp.exe) will consume almost 100% CPU).
This also has significant impact on up-time of my laptop when on battery.
