Running Virus Scan

Recommended Posts

I have this annoying issue

- Word starts slowly and a "Running virus scan" message appears on the status bar -

well described by Microsoft:



BUT, Microsoft solution doesn't work.


Searching on the web I find that

"The virus scan message comes not from Word but from linked anti-virus software."

I noticed this problem shortly after having installed IMMUNET.

So, what can I do?

Put winword + *.doc in exclusion list?


Some help will be very appreciated!
