    Hello,

    After reading in a few threads here about Amon's "optimize scanning" option, I looked at my options for Amon and I find no such setting. Why not?

    No, I think you are looking at the help file picture I'm comparing my options window (grey) to.

    It's been a while since I've installed on Win9X...but I believe that feature isn't available on the 9X version.

    Okay, that might explain it. Thanks.

    NOD32 seems to work just fine, just didn't want something wrong that I wasn't aware of.

    I'd say because you run Win9x system (Millenium is still a Win9x).
    Second guess can be because you don't have NTFS filesystem. Though i think it's because you don't run NT OS...

    Yes, FAT32 is the file system. I don't believe 9x can use NTFS.

    That makes perfect sense to me. Thanks very much.

    And thanks again to all who replied.
