    Virusscan 8.5 .. Slow file access / saving on File Server

      Hi,

      Would appreciate any advice on this...

      Customer has EPO managing their environment, and has VS Enterprise 8.5.0i running on their file server..

      Long and the short of it is, Large files (600mb iso's etc) transfer between servers / workstations fine, with performance as one would expect...

      Save a word, or Excel file to the file server, and it's takes quite a while... As soon as i turn off AV on this server we're saving to, the problem goes away...

      The problem only appears to happen on this one server (2003 32bit sp2), and other boxes of exact same spec, running same VS version are fine... The only thing i can think, is that 90% of the businesses files etc are stored on this one server, we're having to queue for a scan ???, but that makes no sense, as the box isn't stressed at all...

      I've monitored network / cpu / disk / ram etc etc... and the box is fine... not stressed at all....

      Any suggestions / recommendations gratefully recieved !

      Cheers,
