Anyone else finding Norton Antivirus slowing AutoCAD down?

I'm using Norton Antivirus 2002 on a Windows 98 system. Searching the
knowledge base on Autodesk.com I found a patch from Norton to apply but it
has done nothing to speed AutoCAD. I searched the Norton site and found
nothing.

If I disable Norton, AutoCAD 2000 runs as expected.

Anyone else have this problem or better yet - a solution? Thanks in advance
for your time.

Philip,

The way that Norton works is what causes this as it is scanning all
resources and temp files. Windows 98 can run out of resources and simply
reboot when the maximum resource limit is exceeded. This is noted in the
AutoCAD 2002 ReadMe file. Disabling Active Scan usually lightens the
performance hit.

Under Norton's Options, Exclusions, add *.dwg, *.bak *.ac$ & *.sv$ to
the list.
