Hello!

Currently I am testing Avast Business Antivirus (eval.), but something is not right:
Our ERP has a ~100 MB exe on a network shared drive and almost every time when I start it on some of the testing machines, it scans it deeply. For the first time it is okay, but almost every time? If the hash doesn't change, why is it doing over and over again?
If I start it twice within a minute, it will not scan it in the second time, but after a day, it will scan again. Is this a bug or a feature? ;D

This is very essential feature that it "remembers" files if they don't change over time...

Please don't suggest using exceptions, because that is a bad direction for AV protection...

ps.: capacha is crap...almost impossible to read it out! I requested like 10 images before I could read it.

If this is a trusted application that is frequently ran, I would advise setting up an exclusion so it will not be scanned. Be sure to set this in the console and not the client. Most application vendors will publish a list of files that they recommend excluding.
