How to stop virus scanning


T

Tom

Whenever a program in MS Office 2003 e.g. Excel or Word is run, or on each
opening of their documents, my computer carries out a virus scan. This is
wasting a lot of my time in a day. How can I stop this scanning going on as
I already have Norton Antivirus and Zone Alarm installed?


TIA
Tom

You need to switch-off scanning in your anti-virus software, not Office. For
example in Norton anti-virus 2006:

Options > Other > Miscellaneous > and clear the Office plugin checkbox.

MS Office/Excel doesn't scan for viruses.

It is Norton that is doing the scanning.

Open the preferences in Norton and tell Norton what to exclude from scanning.
