Morning all,

As original poster of this thread I will just add that I am
also “infected” by McAfee.

My disease is Symantec!

I am restricted from changing any settings - company policy

Likewise. I can't even reschedule the timing of the full scan that slows

my PC to an absolute crawl!
  • and I am afraid that if Toad cannot co-exist in some kind
    of a “standard setup” with McAfee, then Toad will not win
    that battle…:-((
There may be a way!

(10 Toads against +30.000 McAfees!)

About the same here, except Symantec instead of McAfee.

However, we do have the ability to request of our Symantec Man, to white
list - on our behalf - the various Toad exe files, QSR and the SQL
Tracker utility. Of course, you have the then try and convince said
Symantec Man about what happens if a copy of an infected Toad get sin -
but that's going to be a problem with ANY white listed application I
expect.

I can - however, access my “McAfee log file”, below is an
extract from when I had the problem that maybe can help to
find a solution.

That looks like McAfee was in a loop, timing out and trying again - no
wonder you had severe startup problems.

I suspect that we should all switch to Linux.

Oops. wrong button.

Linux, or convince the guys you need a virtual machine without virus scanner, or
your own scanner and run Toad in that virtual machine?
