I need some help!

Each time I start the MS Word program a virus scan runs even if there is no
document loaded. How can I turn off this feature?

Thanks,

Marv

Check the settings on your AV program.

As JoAnn has indicated this message comes not from Word, but from your AV
software. Some AV software allows you to turn this off, others do not. In
the case of Norton AV, uncheck its office plug-in.

Graham,

That worked. It still seems to takes a long time to load and unload the
program but the Virus Check is no longer running.

Thanks,

Marv
