I'm still having the problem with Avast scanning unopened documents (e.g., unopened Excel spreadsheets) when I navigate into a folder.

I disabled the indexing service on my computer long ago, so that's not the source of the problem.

I've run Process Monitor to see what's happening.  Below is an example of what Avast is doing to each unopened file.  This set of operations takes approximately 0.008 seconds -- multiply that by the number of files in a folder.  Why is Avast doing these operations?  Again, I'm just going into a folder, not opening any documents.  Avast doing the below to each file is noticeably slowing things down and there doesn't seem to be any reason for these operations.

Can anyone explain?

Thank you, again.

John

If you disable the scanning while open/create/modify files, will it by-pass this scanning?

No, Avast's on-access scanner still scans the files.

Just to make sure I correctly did what you asked:  This is after I unchecked the boxes "Scan files on open" and "Scan created/modified files" under the Scanner (Advanced) tab of the Resident task settings.

Thank you for your ongoing help with this.
