My first post to this list !
I use Toad (latest version, 10.xxx) and McAfee Total Protection (including VirusScan 13.15) on my XP computer.
When the Virus software is activated, just starting Toad takes about 2 minutes to the splash screen, plus 3 more to the connection screen and up to 10 minutes to connect to an Oracle database.
If the Virus protection is unactivated, the splash screen comes up in 8 seconds and the whole process to the database connection, less than 30 seconds !
Any clues to that anyone ?
Any suggestion welcome
Thanks in advance
