I have my Trend Micro Folder Shield on. When I clone a git repo and cd into that directory everything very very slow (even a simple ls command) When the folder shield is off everything is very smooth.

I timed the ls command:

Folder shield is on(20+ secs after the command is run)

Folder Shield adds an extra layer of protection to your files by limiting external access to them -- it checks every process that tries to modify these files. To resolve this, can you please add the software you used for compiling to the Trusted Program List? You may find the instructions here:
