Is there anyway to stop the Virus scan from scanning your document every
time you try to open a word document. I'm really sick of it. What a waste.
I understand what they are trying to do. Maybe they need a to hold a key
down while launching a program on something that you might not trust.
Anyway. I want to open documents on my computer without the lag time it
takes for the scan. What can I do?

Open Norton and look for Options.

I use AVG 7 and unchecking Scan Documents just seems to upset AVG.

Open Word
1.. On the Tools menu, click Options.
2.. Click the Security tab.
3.. Under Macro Security, click Macro Security.
4.. Click the Security Level tab, and then select the security level you
want to use.

MS Word documents and Excel Spreadsheets can contain Macros, and these
macros can contain malicious code. I would recommend that you continue to
let Norton continue to scan these files. Life is not so short that you
cannot wait 2 seconds while the files are scanned.

I can't find options in Norton that say anything (that I understand) that
indicates that it will stop checking just because you opened the word
application. As to the 2nd option, regardless of the settings in Word, the
opening of the document takes the same amount of time due to Norton Scan
Time.

Thanks

The articles are very informative, therefore I decided to leave them on.
