    I am new to ewido and for the moment I would like to stay with manual scans only.

    But I was wandering if there was anything to be gained by starting a newly installed (questionable) program and running a dedicated Fast system scan, since the regular scans are normally done with the computer idle and the applications inactive.

    I mean some bad code staying hidden while inside a file on disk but getting exposed to detection while running.

    Has anyone adopted this approach?
