    Hi, when Amon scan a file ?
    In Amon, the last file checked is always persfw.exe, it is my Firewall :)

    Thanks

    Jaewyn,

    It depends on how you have set up NOD32. Have a look at our screen shots. "Scan all files" is recommended.

    regards.

    To avoid this you could exclude this file. Kerio is working in background and amon just follows it (just like any other file).

    Sure, but... isnt it dangerous to exclude a file such as my firewall one ? And if it will get infected by a virus, if I exclude it, amon will not detect the infection...

    There's no need to exclude - just make sure you have the software set up in the right way.

    Lets say virus-Trojan should not by pass and infect your computer in first place. Since NOD32 is really fast I usually do a daily scan.

    Yes, I really wonder how it can be that fast. It is the fastest scan I have ever seen. So fast that I wondered if it has really scanned all my disks hehe :D
