Could you please let us know if you still have this issue occurring with the latest McAfee DAT ?
I have DAT # 6441, Aug 17.
There is no change in the time it takes to open BabelPad. McShield starts running as soon as BabelPad tries to start. McShield continues running for just over 1m30s and then stops and BabelPad completes its start up.
BabelPad does not use an install app. The user just unpacks the .exe into a folder of his choice. I have looked for a way to somehow allow VirusScan or Security Center to approve BabelPad, but I cannot find a way.
The developer says that he has had one other user (only one) report a problem with an "anti-virus" software, but he did not indicate which one.
