Solution: McAfee On-Access Protection/Scanner interferes in Results Analysis from Generators

I have McAfee Virus protection software running on my load controller and generators.

This includes the McAfee On-Access Protection and On-Access Scanner.

Apparently LoadComplete's TCP communication from Controller to Generators and vice-versa is snagged by McAfee. This would result in post-run result analysis taking anything from 2 to 4 hours to complete.

Needless to say, the Task Manager showed McShield.exe taking up to 50% of processor utilization on these machines.

Turning off the On-Access Protection and On-Access Scanner from the VirusScan Console application resulted in immediate collation of results. See attached image for details.

    Hi Suresh,


    Have you tried adding LoadComplete.exe and RAS.exe to McAfee's list of exceptions? I think this will be a better solution.
