            Same problem here. I'm running latest mcafee total protection 10 and 
            it's causing slow outbound file copies to my LAN.

            Uninstall mcafee and problem goes away.


            NOTE you have to uninstall,  'turning' off scan does nothing because the windows service is still running.

            This problem has only recently started to occur - the last two weeks or so.

              Solved for me, If you have an onboard ethernet port then there is a setting for checksum, Disable and all is well

                ok, the mcafee update that was just released seems to have fixed it now without resorting to changing network settings

                  Please, jjk94, can you tell me where is the check for the inbound ethernet port, thanks.

                    should be in device manager - network device - then advanced settings.

                      We identified slow outbound/upload connections with the newer operating systems running certain network cards.  We've released a patch yesterday and today that should address this issue.  Please reply back letting us know whether this patch resolves your issue.
