My computer boots slow with Mcafee

Hello everyone. This is my first post to the forum. I have Mcafee Internet Security and when I boot my computer, it starts up really slow. I have a second and third computer, but they don't boot as slowly with Mcafee installed on them. I am a software developer, so I have lots of development software on my computer. They are big files, but my computer only boots slowly when Mcafee is installed. That made me wonder, does Mcafee scan files on startup? Because if it does, that is why my computer is slow on startup.

With Mcafee installed, it takes about a good 5 minutes for my computer to get going. Is there a way to fix this? Does Mcafee do a quick scan on startup? If so, how can I disable it? Please let me know.

Thanks

There is no such thins as virus scan and agent in the consumer products.  They are totally different than Enterprise products.  Besides there is no Search bar in msconfig.
