Site Advisor - pages slow to close IE8

McAfee updated to the Win 8 type interface in mid January. Since then with McAfee Side Advisor turned on, IE8 web pages taking about 5-10 seconds to close.  Problem goes away when I turn off Site Advisor.  No other IE issues noted.   Any ideas on how to fix this?

As an aside, noticed that the “Removable media, Scan files as I use them” is noticeable now in that 500 MB files result in the popup showing the scan.  Changed that to “Ask me if I want to scan the drive when I insert it.”  Yes I know this is now a 5 year old machine, but it is clean, 38 processes running, most of the time – after McAfee does its thing – there is no CPU activity.
