Windows Defender and Norton Antivirus 2006

Found the Windows Defender interacted badly with NAV when doing a full scan.
When the scan hit the directory c:\documents and settings\all
users\application data\symantec\norton antivirus\quarantine it detected all
the quarantined files and tried to clean them, one at a time (I had over 400
files in there). Norton write-protects these files, so the attempt is
unsuccessful. The result was so screwed up, it required a reboot to clear the
problem

Hello Ed,

you can WD stop scanning this maps!
Go to Tools/General settings/advanced Options and browse to the map and
add the map.

That is ugly, and typical of beta issues, I suspect--they don't have all the
areas that shouldn't be scanned set up yet.

I'd go with Tom Emmelot's advice--you can set areas or objects not to be
scanned in tools, general settings--scroll down..

Hi Tom,
When you add a "path" to the Win Defender\Tools\General Settings\Advanced
Options, as C:program Files\Common Files\ Symantec Shared\, Win Defender
still scans the sub-folders and files in that path and in this case, NAV
denies access and logs it in their event viewer. Possibly the complete path
to the exe need be added individually, but it says you can just add a path.
Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello John,

did some testing, but you are right, path is not working, only files!
