Default Word Run Virus Scan

Hello,

I`m using word 2003.
When i open it the program is slow because he`s run virus scan.

Now i would like to see if it`s faster when i remove the virus scan on
my computer (witch was norman). I have removed it but i still got the
message he is running a virus scan. But i don`t know with witch
program.

Is there some solution?

Default Word Run Virus Scan

The virus scan message comes not from Word but from linked anti-virus
software. 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"

Other AV apps eg the popular free ediition of Grisoft's AVG antivirus
software, require similar treatment.
In this instance:

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

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.

Clearly you haven't removed something.
Uninstalling AV software does not necessarily release the dlls that are
causing the problem. Check whether the installation folder for the av
software remains, then see if that contains any dll files that could still
be loaded and unregister them. If that doesn't fix it and you have no wll
files remaining then I guess you will have to contact Norman AV and ask them
what files need to be removed manually to get rid of their software.
