Kill Symantec AntiVirus scan-on-connect windows

Yeah, I know the feeling - you plug in your external drive and Symantec kicks in scanning. To top that, you also get Spotlight indexing the drive. Definitely not fun...
A note: by default, Symantec AV installs a preference pane that will allow you to configure what type of disks are scanned when mounted. Here's a screenshot:
