    Cygwin problem after McAfee update today

      Hello,

      We're using both Cygwin and McAfee already for a couple of years on e.g. a netbook, running Windows XP, McAfee AntiVirus Plus.

       

      Cygwin ( www.cygwin.com )  is a very powerful  Unix-like system on top of windows, we use it in addition to native Linux and Mac OS systems.

       

      One of Cygwin options is to start a command shell, which opens a window where you can interact by means of commands.

       

      Today, after a McAfee update, the comand shell prompt seems to be blocked by McAfee.

       

      If we turn-off McAfee for the usual 15 minutes, the command shell prompt appears again.

       

      Should we configure McAfee differently ?, are we missing something ?, please let us know.

       

      Kind regards,

      Cecoth.
