In SharePoint servers, some of the SharePoint, IIS, SQL Server folders should be excluded from anti-virus protection in order to avoid performance hits!

such as: (C:\ may be other drive as well)

  • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Logs 
  • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Data.
  • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Bin
  • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\14.0\Synchronization Service, 
  • C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Local Settings\Temp,
  • etc
