Yesterday, I was browsing the Internet and the the red square brackets went around the McAfee tray icon. The programs logged were two that I commonly used, and had no problems before at all, but would have been blocked if Access Protection was enabled. Since there was a huge list of the two entries (McAfee kept reporting them every other second or so it seemed like), I enabled the block. I changed some settings in the Access Protection log, but now it's just giving me more logs & slowing down *everything* on the computer, especially startup and Explorer; programs I open are unresponsive for a couple of seconds, then restore themselves. Also, McAfee likes to randomly disable itself out of the blue, so I have to a. reenable it myself, b. Windows Security pops up and says it's disabled, and I enable it from there, or c. the option to enable/disable is whited out, but it restores itself after a while. Is this just a McAfee bug or should I be worried about it?

The logs have gotten to a point where everything from yesterday was wiped out because the file didn't have enough space for them...

Is there an optimal configuration for VirusScan Access Protection, or at least a way to reset it to the default? I don't remember which ones I changed, and don't want the ones that are supposed to be left there changed...

Also ran a Malwarebytes scan, came up clean.

Edit: I think it's stemming from "Anti-virus Maximum Protection:Protect cached files from password and email address stealers." Should I unblock this feature? I've never encountered the problem before with the two programs listed yesterday (Cisco Systems & Quickplay, but yesterday the log file said it wasn't blocked), since I use them all the time.
