Norton 2006 scans MS Word file on open

  1. Hi to all.
    My friend is frustrated by Norton scanning her docs when she opens them. I don't use Norton and would appreciate it if someone could tell me how to switch it off.
    TIA.
    Basil.

    There is an Office-plugin that automatically scans all office documents whenever they are opened.
    Click Start/Programs/Symantec or Norton/your AntiVirus program.
    Click Options. Under Other, click Miscellaneous.
    Under How to keep Microsoft Office documents protected, click to clear the Enable Office Plug-in check box, and then click OK.
    Restart the computer.
