To reduce the overhead for some process-heavy tasks, some VirusScan Enterprise users disable Access Protection and Buffer Overflow Protection. Even though the features are disabled, the drivers remain loaded in memory.
This issue was first resolved in Hotfix 464768 for VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) 8.7i, which has now been added to the existing cumulative patches. Disabling the Access Protection and Buffer Overflow drivers now yields the expected performance increase.
