I’ll second Michal on that one. I’ve never found it a workable option to have any kind of virus checker running on a development machine. Besides the problems Michal mentions, they have a tendency to hook low-level system functions, and to object to other programs (like debuggers and some copy-protection schemes, such as Discreet’s C-Dilla) that try to do the same.

My solution is to have multiple hardware profiles under Windows XP, with my development profile running as bare-bones as possible. Naturally, I don’t connect that machine to any network while that profile is active. This forces you to manually choose a profile each time you reboot, but it’s the only real solution.
