As you appear to have done all the steps we would normally recommend I think perhaps you should approach Technical Support directly. It's free by phone or online chat and linked under Useful Links at the top of this page.
The only thing I would add would be, did you run the MCPR cleanup tool after uninstalling and before reinstalling?
(Linked under Useful Links at the top of this page also).
The other thing to add is that I do know that the Virtual Technician has been having problems with a faulty data server and has been giving strange readings in some cases.
Thanks for the response. I did not run the MCPR tool. I just clicked on the link at the top of the page and it returned a message that the document ID was not recognized by the system. Any other suggestions?
This issue has been reported to Engineering and the issue is under investigation. It won’t cause any problem on your machine so requesting you to wait for at least 1 week to check the condition of the issue. I will also ask my engineering team to know the current status of the issue
I did the complete uninstall directly from McAfee (MCPR) and the problem still exists. I ran the computer without the McAfee and it was fast again. Once i did the download, it returned to being slow. Please keep me informed if the Engineering department comes up with anything soon.
