My current NAV configuration involves turning off "Auto-Protect"
but leaving on "Email Scanning" and "Script Blocking".  This seems
to stop NAV intercepting all file operations (as it normally
would) but leaves the email virus scanning in place (which is
where I get all my virus donations).

This setup seems to have sped my system up by a reasonable factor
without compromising security too much (YMMV).
