I use Windows Defender and am running Zemana AntiMalware Premium on a trial. i'd like to be able to scan archives by invoking WD from WinRAR. The problem is that ZAM interferes with this. When WinRAR performs an archive scan, it creates a batch file in the system temporary directory. The batch file is created in a subdirectory. Both the subdir and the BAT file have variable names. For example, given C:\Temp as the system temp directory, a BAT file created by WinRAR might be: C:\Temp\Rar$VR0.463\Rar$Scan1939.bat Given that the path and file name are variably named, I see no way to exclude them from ZAM. Given that ZAM blocks every BAT created by WinRAR, this seems to mean I have no options other than: 1. Don't scan from WinRAR. 2. Disable ZAM real-time protection, or remove ZAM completely. 3. Exclude the entire temporary directory. Am I missing something? I've exchanged quite a few emails with Zemana support, but I'm really frustrated, because they don't seem to even read what I send. I've sent screenshots and a video (!) and we're just not on the same page.
