Turn off rtvscan.exe started by sysmantec antivirus

We are using Symantec Antivirus. When we are using Microsft Virtual PC a process called rtvscan.exe is using around 50,000K of memory that we wish to release to VPC. When we are using VPC we are not connected to the internet or network so we do not need Symantec Antivirus. How can I turn it off? I have tried disabling and rebooting but rtvscan.exe is still there.

Hi,

RTVSCAN is the the process that does a real time scanning of files. Try disabling real time scanning by right clicking the antivirus taskbar icon and choosing disable real time.

You may also go to "Run" and type msconfig then choose startup and uncheck rtvscan.

Hi yasserd,

Disable autoprotect does not stop rtvscan.exe. Msconfig does not show rtvscan as an option under startup.

If you can not find and.or disable rtvscan.exe service from within Services in Administrative tools you may want to have installed small Kill Process tool and terminate Norton AV real time file acces service.

The service that requires stooping is Symantec Antivrus. This kills rtvscan.exe and doscan.exe but the memory is not released immediately. Invoke of the VPC first time may fail due to lack of memory but thereafter it's fine
