    mcshield.exe goes to 100% in task manager when using thunderbird

      This has taken awhile to trackdown. This started occuring within the last couple of updates.

       

       

      I am using Thunderbird v17 and v16.1 of McAfee antivirus that is part of Internet security on Windows XP.

       

      When I click on any item in Thunderbird, mcshield.exe immediately goes to close to 100% effectively freezing my machine until mcshield.exe returns to 0%. It does not matter if I am clicking on indicator that shows whether or not a message has been read, the junk mail indicator, clicking on the message to read it, or switching between folders.

       

      Unless this problem is resolved immediately, I am going to start looking for another program to secure my PC.

       

      The McAfee techinician did not find any problems.
