Antivirus won't run when Windows 2000 user is locked

Antivirus won't run when Windows 2000 user is locked

Antivirus won't run when Windows 2000 user is locked

(OP)
Is there anyway to run a scheduled antivirus scan when you have locked the computer in Win 2000 or NT? - I don't like leaving any computer unlocked when away from it (making it a harder for any successful hacker into my network to gain access to any of the computers), but I want the scan to operate at night when the use of the computer is at a minimum (other than backups) -

any help would be appreciated

RE: Antivirus won't run when Windows 2000 user is locked

We run scheduled scans on all our NT and W2K workstations and servers while they are locked.  We're using NAV CE 7.5 and have never had a problem.  Does NAV have the correct permissions?  Are you logging off instead of locking?  I think there must be some other reason.

thanks for the reply hd2000flht

the version of NAV i'm running is 7.07.23D which comes with the internet security package from Norton/Symantec.

I am only locking the computer, not logging off

As far as permissions, i haven't seen anywhere that I am able to either set permissions for NAV or assign a local NT/2000 user account for NAV to run in

any thoughts?
