Does McAfee Internet Security blocks running shell commands?

Before installing McAfee Internet Security I could run Perl shell commands using eg. backtick operator (``) with Administrator priveleges on my laptop with Win 7. However, after its installation files are not executed but opened in a editor like Notepad. I try to do that still as Administrator.

On other laptop that uses other Internet Security is OK.

Does McAfee blocks shell_commands and how to fix that without uninstalling McAfee?
