    I noticed the cleaning mode listed in the command line scanner is as follows:

    Code:
    ECLS Command-line scanner, version 4.0.424.0, (C) 1992-2009 ESET, spol. s r.o.
    ...
           /clean-mode=MODE         use cleaning MODE for infected objects.
                                      Available options: none, standard (default),
                                      strict, rigorous, delete
    ...
    
    None, standard, and strict are in the GUI and explained. Delete seem self-explanatory. What is the rigorous option? How does it compare to the other options.

    Rigourous means that infected will be always deleted, even if it's an actual file infected with a virus. So basicly using this option may cause system instability if infected crucial system files are deleted.
