Does Eset scan each word document?

    Have XP SP3
    Office 2007.

    Word itself opens up quick.
    But when I create a new word document and open that at a later time, that Word doc is slow to open. Is Eset scanning this doc and thats the reason for the slowness?
    If so, is there a work around - something to speed up the process?

    Hello sethm1,

    To find out you can do the following:

    If using ESS V3.0: Disable the AV and open your document.

    If using ESS V4: Uncheck the document protection and then open your document.

    Please let me know if this changes it.

    Thank you,
    Richard

    version 3

    and I guess the answer is no, I saw maybe a 1 second diff (with Eset disabled) in opening a word doc.

    I have installed EAV 4.0 on several computers in my office and also had massive slowdowns on opening and saving files - locally and over the network.
    I disabled every "Scan on" checkboxes concerning files (screenshot) and set the file types as exclusions on the Fileserver. Only with these settings it is possible to work without long delay.
    I have InDesign and Photoshop from Adobe and files from apps can be very large. I have no time to wait about 30 seconds or more to open such a file only because EAV wants to scan it...

    Thanks for the tip.
    So, no concerns on having NO open file scanned ?
    Maybe I'll uncheck that, but keep creation & execution checked.
    Something to play with.

    Does the document protection scan only documents opened in word? If NOD32 is running on a fileserver and word docs are opened will the real-time scan it as well as document protection?
