Slice-Master and Kaspersky software resource issues?

I have a 6600M I am using with a Dell 8930 i7 gen-8 machine. Running Kaspersky  with Slice-Master consumes 30-35% of this processor which seems very excessive. I exempted SM and CW Skimmer from Kaspersky monitoring and the usage drops to 14-15%.    Anyone else seeing issues with Kaspersky and Slice-Master (0.10.5e) and SmartSDR 2.4.9?

I saw the same with Norton and DxLab. Seems like the patterns of hamradio telnet connections and traffic look really suspicious to the AV programs...

I excluded all ham radio applications. Suddenly everything runs much faster.  I excluded:

N1MM+ app folder
N1MM+ doc folder
GHE server folder
GHE client folder
DXLab folder
SliceMaster folder
RBN aggregator folder
CW skimmer folder

This is common with many anti-virus / firewall programs as they may try to filter each and every packet going to and from the computer.  Best to exempt the program in the anti-virus program.
