On access scanner missed a virus
« on: November 15, 2003, 06:01:25 PM »
I was using Kazaa and while downloading a file I got no warning from avast and none when it was finished :o. I always right click scan every file from Kazaa before i open it then it found the virus it is currently in virus chest I tried to repair but failed. Virus Description: Win32:Sddrop [Wrm]

What is the filename extension of that file?
Do you have the P2P shield enabled?

I'm an avast! Pro user. I'm a little bit confused, does the home version has p2p Shield? I suppose that only Profesional has it.  :-\

Profession Edition includes also:
- Script blocking. It checks scripts contained in the web pages you look at, thus avoiding infection due to potential bugs in your web browser
- Instant Messaging. It checks the files downloaded by common communication programs, such as ICQ or MSN Messenger
- P2P Shield. It checks the files downloaded by common P2P (file sharing) programs, such as Kazaa and others

Definitevely not... I'm an user like you... I just started before.
Anyway, sometime in the past I thought that I have to join the team  ;D
Maybe Igor can tell my story... I translated avast! into my language so I have to learn and read a lot of it.
Let's wait some answer from Igor, Vlk, pk, Pavel, vojtech, kubecj... They are the real avast! team.  ;)

Thanks mina... Now it's not necessary other confirmations.
