Virus scan


D

Devin

Hello all, I have a Win 2000 Pro computer with Office 2000
and Norton Antivirus 2004 installed on it.

When I have tried to open any of the Words (.DOC) or Excel
(.XLS) file, there's a comment on the bottom left corner
saying "Requesting virus scan...". This feature caused me
to wait a long time before I can finally open the file.

How can I disable the feature?

Thanks,

Devin

PS - I have tried changing the Macro security setting
to "low" but the virus scan request is still active.

Are you using Norton Anti-virus? If so, for the 2002 version under
Options/Miscellaneous/Other,
disable the Office PlugIn.
