Avast!'s Technology
« on: March 18, 2003, 02:14:36 PM »
Just wondering if Avast! 4 scans things like UPX runtime packed and PEcompact'ed  files ?

And I ran Avast! full thorough scan yesterday - threw up alot about not being able to scan 137 files as they were password protected - any chance of being able to scan these soon?

You may take a look at this psoting:;action=display;threadid=57

Hm, i think no AV-Programm is able to scan password protected files(inside archives). Maybe Michael is able to find out how! ;)
