I just installed ISS on a very fast XP Pro desktop.
I had ZA Pro ISS 7.0.483 on this machine and had 0 problems.
Now the on-access scanning process takes 3 minutes to open a 250 KB Excel workbook.
Also takes a verrrry long time to access any other file type.
I set my data files drive and and directories to be excluded from scanning, but this doesn't work either.
These are the same problems I had with ISS 8.0.020.
Zone Alarm is not the same as it was before Check Point bought ZoneLabs.
I'm seriously thinking about going back to Norton Antivirus and Spy Sweeper.
My ZA subscription expires in 2 months and I probably won't renew it.
Does anyone have any suggestions to fix the slow access scan problem?
