Firefox Slow Startup

I just installed Mcafee antivirus Plus and all of a sudden it takes firefox at least 10 seconds to start up.  Before all of this it used to take less than a second to bring up the window and hompage so what is going on and how can I fix this?

Cannot see that on mine though I am on the 2012 version alpha. Can you post back with the firefox version and Mcafee version numbers. Try with netguard disabled is there a change?

Netguard is in the firewall settings

Re: Firefox Slow Startup

I am on Firefox 8.0 and

Mcafee SecurityCenter verion 11.0.623
Mcafee Virus Scan version 12.0.294

Mcafee Personal Firewall version 12.0.345

Mcafee SiteAdvisor

Mcafee QuickClean and Shredder version 11.0.393

and disabling Netguard didn't do anything.  I had the regular version of mcafee installed and I was doing just fine.  Is there anything added with plus that can cause this cause now even internet explorer is doing the same thing?

Re: Firefox Slow Startup

Do you have any other spyware/malware protection software? If so please un-install it.

It would be good to try updating the windows and re-installing the McAfee software
