View Full Version : Virus scan in Word 2000

04-01-2003, 03:21 PM
When I open any file in Word 2000, a message appears on the bottom left hand side of the screen saying "Requesting Virus Scan". This seems to make opening files a lot slower than I think it should. Is there a remedy please?

I will assume that you are using Nortons Antivirus software. To turn off the Office document scanning option, go into Nortons Antivirus options, click under Other > Miscellaneous and remove the tick beside Enable Office Plug-in.
