Jami, if I were you I would install the antivirus software with a couple of limitations. Do not run the scan on open or save utilities. I had seen some Protel issues that we believe were being caused by Norton AV software a long time ago. We turned of the scan on open and save, problems went away. The software still scans incoming email and internet downloads but doesn't scan everything that we open or save which was already resident on our drives. In our case we figured the AV software was some how interfering with Protel's operation when opening or saving files.
