Perhaps add BLS-2015 to the exception list for VIPRE? I'm wondering, since all the slowdown reports are coming from Vector Plus installs and they all have VIPRE, that the AntiVirus is causing the issue.
Regarding avoiding the backup before uploading to leaguesecretary.com, no, you can't avoid that as that is part of the feature, where we upload the league backup.
