    Eset NoD 32 AV has an option to scan your drives without cleaning. Rather than just grabbing each and every suspicious creature by the scruff of neck and heaving them out on the street or locking them up in quarantine wthout so much as a 'by your leave', Eset hands you a list of suspects and you can then decide what to do on an individual basis. This :thumb: or this :thumbd:

    Any other AVs have a 'just peeking - no action' option?

    Quite a lot, some by default and others in the options, I think it's better to ask which AV's cannot, then the list will be shorter :D

    Didn't know that. Thanks guys. i'm out of practice with AVs. I only ever used NoD32 for years. Then switched to the sandboxie / defensewall approach. Haven't kept up with AVs.
