Subject Antivirus software prevents Automize from launching visual basic script
Version 6.x
Date   07/22/2007
Message hello, 
I have a problem with a scheduled script (task.vbs) that does some routine maintence on my pc. This task is performed 4 times per hour and involves calling a .bat file. My problem involves mcafee stopping "task.vbs" from executing because it thinks it's a virus. 
What are my options? I don't want to disable my anti virus software from performing a much needed service.
Reply1 Hi Mark, 
You may have to specifically set the anti virus software to recognize the script as a trusted script. I do not have McAffee, and I do not know if this option is available in it. We use Symantec Norton Antivirus and it has an option to allow disallow scripts etc.. 
Stop this script: Prevents the script from running. Choose this if you do not trust the script source or the current script activity.
Authorize this script: Lets the script run with no further Script
Blocking alerts. Choose this option if you know and trust the script’s source.
