How do I stop AMON from finding eicar and other harmless renamed viruses that I use for testing in System Restore? What is AMON doing in System Restore anyhow? I had to disable AMON just now as it keeps popping up with a "virus" it has found in System Restore. I could understand if this was the NOD32 scanner finding these during an on demand scan of my C drive but why has AMON decided to go looking around in System Restore? It shouldn't be doing that. AMON never used to do this so what is triggering it and I how do I stop this? This is irritating enough when I am on the computer, but when I am away or asleep and AMON goes looking around in System Restore and finds eicar and pops up a virus alert that action wakes my monitor and because I am not there to do anything my monitor will stay on for hours until I finally awaken or come home. I can't have AMON doing this as I don't want my new, really great monitor damaged. I know I could zip eicar and the others and then password protect them or I could exclude them but the first one takes time to do and the second isn't helpful either as I want eicar detected if I either right click scan it or do a full on demand scan. I just don't want AMON detecting it in system restore. It should be that NOD32 scanner would detect it there not AMON. I am using NOD32 version 2 on XP Pro Sp1a.
