Surely it would be easier to have it scan all downloaded files? Rather than have to expand the list for new threats.

I don't use flashget, but I would have thought the settings would allow for scan all of the files or allow use of wild cards, etc. If it doesn't, I would suggest trying another that does. If that suits your needs then you could switch permanently.

I use Star Downloader, I find that a very good downloader (works with firefox, avant and IE, context menus), if you select scan with your AV, the default is to scan all files.

Sorry I can't be of more help, not being a flashget user.

OK! :D But i think it's better to add the files one by one becouse files that are 700 mb are scanned very slow.Thanks again for the information. and have a nice day ::)
