Firefox & Avast
« on: April 17, 2004, 04:34:47 PM »
Hi all,
Does Avast scan Firefox like it does IE? ???
As I cruise around using Firefox I notice the Avast icon does not spin.
Thanks in advance,Dave

avast resident scanner doesn't scan until you download files & execute them...even for IE

if you use a download manager...you can take a look at this thread..

furthermore you can customise your resident scanner to detect virus in archives before downloading them..

hope this helps
