      Is there any way to stop McAfee from automatically scanning external drives when they are plugged in?  When I plug in a drive to backup, McAfee freezes my computer using 85 to 90 percent of the CPU for as much as 15 minutes before it stops.  I know I can prevent it from scanning files, but is there a way to prevent it from scanning a drive?
