There are some link problems that need looked at please:

 http://service1.symantec.com/support/ent-security.nsf/docid/2009012721190648?Open&seg=ent

Comes up as a bad link.

http://service1.symantec.com/ent-security.nsf/docid/2010010319585948

Goes to a Symantec page that links to an Intuit page that doesn't talk about folder/fle exclusions but firewall exclusions.

Best Practices for file and folder scan exclusions are recommended when using QuickBooks 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 for me.

No it's not. The link goes to a page entitled "Firewall and Internet security for updates and network access" that isn't about file exclusions it's about firewall exceptions.

Always under the impression that allowing AutoProtect to scan over the network was a horrible idea.  Could someone comment on the both the pros and cons of enabling this?  Thanks.
