    Thunderbird email hangs - On access scanning 25-50% CPU




      I use the IMAP client to manage my emails and a standard account for enhanced security on Windows 8.1.  The on-access scanning is killing performance on a very new PC which runs grerat when I remove McAfee.  I've been trying to synce 10 emails to a folder for 45 minutes over a very fast connection.  Is there a way I can get:

      • Access to suspend real-time scanning from a standard acccount? - add a password access??
      • Access to exclusions menu to remove the Thunderbird directory (I changed to an Admin account and this worked for a few days)

      I'm not running the Thunderbird plug-in.
