I suspect someone has fiddled with Access Protection settings - it's the only logical answer I can give,
Do you get the same results if Access Protection is switched off?
I am the only one with access to the box. Even with access protection and scanner disabled it does the same thing. mcshield.exe takes 50% resources then after it is "done doing whatever" the drive pops up. Removing mcafee altogether fixes the problem?!
EDIT: after rebooting with the install of VSE 8.7i Hotfix 3, the time is cut down dramatically when inserting the drive. I have noticed that even on empty drives, it may take 15-20 seconds for My Computer to bring the drive letter up. Any way to speed that up?
Well, I updated all McAfee agents to the latest 4.5 and pushed out McAfee 8.7i Patch 3. All systems seem to be working now. Drives are appearing normally and quickly.
EDIT: While I was updating I also updated to the latest Antisyware module as well.
