Scanning network drives

Is your network slow? It could be your antivirus program's fault.

Some AV programs scan network drives by default. This can create additional network traffic that can interfere with other traffic on your network and slow your network down. If you have AV installed on both your servers and your clients, then there's no need for scanning network shares and you should disable this feature--consult your AV documentation for how to do this.
