Word 2007 doing virus scan

Post by Larr » Tue, 27 Mar 2007 04:27:52


In Word 2007, frequently when a document is opened it takes a long time to
do so, and there is a message that the document is being scanned for
viruses! Why would a file being opened from inside the same computer need
to be scanned?

In any case, I cannot find in Help anything about a virus scan inside Word.
How do I turn off this wonderful feature?

Thanks.

Larry

Word is not doing the virus scan. Your antivirus program is and that's why
there was nothing in Word's Help file - but I am glad to read that you tried
looking the info up first.

You need to check your settings on your antivirus program. It's in there.

Thanks. I see. It's not Microsoft Office Word 2007 that is doing this
wonderful thing. It is Microsoft Windows Vista that is doing this wonderful
thing.

Vista is designed as though it were meant for use in a top secret section of
the Defense Department, will its constant double checks on every little
change that you make.

No, Vista is not scanning either. It is the ANti Virus utility.

But the owner of the computer did not install any anti-virus utility, so it
must have come with Windows Vista. Well, maybe it was installed by Compaq
and has nothing to do with Windows Vista...

there.

New computers come with something installed. I think my HP had Symantec. I
dumped it immediately and installed AVG.
