Has anyone experienced drawings opening slowly due to McAfee firewall?

It was taking at least 12 and often 15 or more seconds to open anything, even a blank drawing. I switched off the firewall and it only takes 3 seconds.

I have had to install Comodo free firewall for now.

I went through McAfee support process and ended up with the usual uninstall everything and re-install it solution which did not solve the problem.

As mentioned I got it all working with Comodo firewall but that comes with adverts and im a bit miffed that I can't use my fully paid for McAfee.

Anyway.. I was just wondering if there has been any previous experience of this or if anyone has any ideas? I did a search but did not find anything on the forum..

Cheers in advance....
