WD Security freezes Mac Pro for 6 mins after start-up

When I install WD Security (v it adds WDSecurityHelper to my login items on my late 2013 Mac Pro. After installation, each time I start my Mac it freezes for 6 (!) minutes immediately after I boot the Mac (the system log file shows absolutely no activity and the screen shows only the Apple logo and a spinning wheel for exactly 6 mins). When I remove WD Security and restart twice the problem is gone.

Anyone else seen this problem? I’m running Mavericks 10.9.4 and I have attached a WD MyPassport Ultra.


I recommend you contact WD support for assistance. They should be able to help you troubleshoot your issue.
