2.28. Avoid conflict between Volocity and antivirus software

We don't have specific recommendations for a particular package. Potentially the real-time protection of the antivirus software may effect Volocity's performance, to avoid any conflicts with Volocity we would recommend one of the following three options:

1. Disable "real-time protection"

This is the simplest solution, however this will disable real-time protection for the whole computer. Not all institutions will permit this.

2. Disable "real-time protection" for Volocity

The antivirus software may allow real-time protection to be disabled for particular processes or applications. This can be used to disable protection specifically for Volocity.

3. Disable "real-time protection" for Volocity data files

The antivirus software may allow real-time protection to be disabled for particular file types or for a particular location. For file types, disable real-time scanning for:

*.mvd2

*.aisf

*.acsf

*.aiix

*.atsf

*.dat

In conclusion we would recommend option 2 as the best solution, it is the easiest to configure and maintains a better level of security over completely disabling protection.
