Anti Virus Setting Recommendations

Fresh install of ArcGIS10 on Windows 7 (32bit) and we are seeing slow behaviour - but the worst is Catalog. It appears that the antivirus (Symantec Endpoint) is scanning every FGDB table as Catalog attempts to refresh and it gets stuck in a loop. Catalog window in ARcMap is faster - maybe it skips the antivirus in some way??

Seems to be specific to Windows 7/ArcGIS10 as the same rules don't cause such a problem with XP/9.3.1. Can anybody supply a workaround/list of all the exclusions to ensure that filegeodatabase tables are not scanned?
