    I have Norton AV ver 2006. Each time I open a document, spreadsheet, etc. it scans it. These are files that are already on my computer. I manually scan any file received from someone else but this scanning of my own files is killing my machine. Because of the scanning process my machine virtually stops running. It hangs up other apps and is genedrally a pain in the rear.

    How can I get it to stop scanning every file? Thanks.
