Default turn of "requesting virus scan" in word

I am using XP Home, Word 2002. On openeiong, Word it takes extended time
"requesting virus scan". I have followed all the links on advice boards about
turning off office pugins in Nortons AV 2006. I have done this but it has no
effect. I have just installed NAV 2006 and it still does it. It was doing it
before with NAV 2004 version and continues to do it with the new 2006
version. By the way I have tried this many times but still with no luck
Please any help. - Totally frustrated

Stop paying the extortion money to Norton. Download the free AVG Antivirus
program to your desktop from http://free.grisoft.com Uninstall NAV 2006 and
then install AVG. You will be forever grateful.

Office MVP Beth Melton recently reported her discovery that "If there are
any WLL add-ins in the Startup folders they will trigger this message even
if the user doesn't have any type of virus scanner enabled. Apparently, MS
is using the virus scanning engine to check for macros in WLL files and as a
result it triggers the message. Note other than checking for macros it isn't
actually performing a virus scan....One add-in I know of that still uses a
WLL is EndNote." So you might check your Word and Office Startup folders for
..wll files.

I too now use AVG, but it isn't going to resolve this problem, and has its
own link with Word that produces the same message. It is first necessary to
unregister and remove the dll that is causing the problem.

Checking of Word/Office documents can usually be deselected in the AV
program e.g. in Norton AV by turning off its Office Plug-in.

With some versions of the Norton product it may be necessary to unregister
the calling DLL by running the following command line from Windows Start
Run

regsvr32 /u "c:\program files\norton antivirus\officeav.dll"
or
regsvr32 /u "c:\program files\norton systemworks\norton
antivirus\officeav.dll"

Grisoft's AVG antivirus software if installed, will require similar
treatment. In this instance:

regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\Grisoft\AVG Free\avgoff2k.dll"

That's what the problem was. I have Endnote installed, with WLLL addin file.
I deleted it, and now I don't get the message. Thanks. I'm not sure Endnote
works properely yet, but thats another issue. Since I don't use it as often
as Word, I may just put up with that. Thanks again.
