    Requesting Virus Scan (2002-SP3)

    After installing SP3, Word hangs when I first open it and the status bar displays "Requesting Virus Scan." I take it that the request is delaying things, so is there a way to disable that? I'm also running McAfee 7.0. Thanks.

    I'm not sure about McAfee, but Norton AV does give the option of scanning MS Office documents (see screen shot). If McAfee has a similar option, you can disable it. As long as you have real time virus protection running, this is a redundant feature.

    Thanks. I didn't see that option in McAfee. I didn't notice it in Word until I went to SP3.
