    Just curious to everyone's opinion;
    Is it needed to scan all files? I know some files/ext can't possibly hurt you .txt files for ex, so just how much extra protection does scanning all file exts really add? Any body had any files that would have been missed unless all files was selected?

    If you scan all the files in AMON you can avoid that someone find a way to some extension can be a threat, but the default list will be updated if necessary...

    I use the default list more the extensionless files, except on the On-Demand scanner... ;)
