Issue/Introduction

You need to know whether Symantec AntiVirus scans the Windows pagefile.

Resolution

Symantec AntiVirus does not scan the Windows pagefile for viruses.

Note that File System Realtime Protection or Auto-Protect does monitor disk activity to the pagefile, so you may see Pagefile.sys listed in File System Realtime Scan Statistics or File System Auto-Protect statistics.
