Thanks for the reply.
I know there is a work around; however, this issue has been lurching towards a resolution by McAfee since July last year. If you include the time I spent with MS 3rd line tech support in 'proving that it was a Total Protection issue', it originated on 14 May 2017.
As I said to Siddhartha, I'll soon be posting a message here celebrating it's first birthday, including an emoji of a 'birthday cake with a single candle' on it!
We are glad to know with latest McAfee release v16.0.R9 the issue got resolved. We will mark this discussion as resolved such that other peers might get benefitted from the solution.
