    Hello Eset.

    Scan when downloading file is a new feature in upcoming ESS 6.
    What does it mean?

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    In ESET NOD32 Antivirus and ESET Smart Security 6, certain types of files (larger archives, firmware updates for devices like smartphones) are scanned as they are downloaded, as opposed to scanning after the entire file has been downloaded.

    This allows you to begin immediately working with the file after it has been downloaded, instead of having to wait for a scan to finish, which might take a few moments on a multigigabyte file.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
