virus scan nuisance

  be1144 16:08 15 Dec 2005

Windows ME with Norton AV. Each time I attempt to open a file, I get the message "requesting a virus scan" and this process takes 5 to 10 seconds - very annoying.
How do I disable this action?

Well I would think the best way is to get rid of anything Norton on your computer and go for AVG, Adaware, Spybot, Spywareblaster and Zonealarm.

All free.
