    7-ZIP is an open source software,more and more people have used it,but nod32 can't support 7z and tar.It's not very convenient.I hope nod32 can support them ASAP.

    Hi Don,

    as long as AMON is running everytime you unzip/decompress a file it's scanned inmediately... you'r protected.

    Which bring to me this question? What's the point of a weekly scan if Amon will catch them anyway?

    We actually plan to add 7-zip support in the future.

    Hi berng,

    if you are working at FolderA.... amon is scanning in real time that folder... but your "entire hard drive" is not monitored in realtime...so here come your weekly/complete scan.

    NOTE: AMON monitor files system or any file beeing used/opened/created/modified (as per setting).

    I know if you're not working on a file you will not know that a virus is there. But is that important? When you actually use the file, it will be caught.

    It seems to me the only advantage of recurring scans is that this will identify malware before the actual use of that file. Are there any other advantages for scanning?
