Slow machine performance while using eclipse, java, ant, oracle sql developer on windows

I’ve been having performace issues with my machine from a long time. Some of the issues I was faced were:

  • Java based softwares like Eclipse, SQL Developer taking a long time to start.
  • UI hanging up with hour glass for several minutes
  • ant build taking a minute to start running

One fine day it occured to me that it could be due to the antivirus. We are using McAfee and its OnAccess scan had been enabled. Disabling the “on access scan” in the McAfee console solved all the issues.
