Visual Studio and on-access scanning

P: n/a
Hi all

Does anyone here have to use VS on a machine that has "on-access" virus
scanning?

We have Read/Write scanning turned on on our desktops and we're pretty sure
that it is killing VS and pretty much any other app. We use VS at home and
it's blistering, and our machines at home are a lower spec - so what could
be the problem?

Has anyone had experience with this? We are trying to convince our security
guys that read/write is overkill and that perhaps just write would be
enough, however I'm not a virus guru and I don't want to make blanket
statements without some idea of what the implications are.

If you think your virus scanner is overdoing it's work, would it be making
sense to include your project directories in the "exclusion list" of virus
scanner?

Most commercial virus scanners supports excluding certain directories.
(Typically the quarantine folder)
