I'd love to, unfortunately all the options are locked and password protected. :-( It's running McAfee VirusScan set to scan 'default' files (whatever that means) when they are written to the disk. I assume if I can persuade them to disable the scan on the cvsrepo and cvstemp directories then that should be enough? They are more likely to do it if they can keep scanning the rest of the disk.
