Note:

Mail Security lets you configure performance counters for logging. By default, this counter is enabled. However, to improve a scanning performance, these performance counters for logging can be turned off by adding the following registry key and setting its value to 1:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Symantec\SMSMSE\7.5\Server\TurnOffPerfCounters.

Restart the Mail Security service after setting this registry key.
