mcafee scans each time a user logs in

Hello smart people,

I have several workstations that are shared with many users. Each workstation might have 10 - 15 users that login and work for ~ 10 minutes, then mostly idle for 30 minutes, then logout. McAfee seems to be scanning for the first 10 minutes or so, then seems finished before logout. Then, a few minutes later another user of that system will login and Mcafee starts scanning, taking much of the workstation resources for the first 10 minutes, etc. when the user most needs the workstation. It seems to scan for every user. Can we have it scan between users or not scan at each login. Thank you kindly!

Hi @PaulR1 

We are sorry for the trouble. This seems to be a rare scenario. Please let us know the McAfee product installed on the workstation and its version to help you further resolve it.
