    Hello,

    The real-time scanner will scan any file that is downloaded through an instant messenger. Any time a file is created, opened, or modified, the ESET software scans it before it can be executed.

    You can add addtional parameters, yet, they are optional, I use them, if you swap files with your Instant Message buddies.
    Please do yourself a favour and uninstall ICQ !!!
