Web archives
« on: August 27, 2007, 03:52:57 AM »
I am trying Avast out.  I have Web Shield activated but it does not seem to be scanning archives.  I can download infrcted archives and Avast doesnt make a peep.  Once the archive is downloaded and I scan it with Avast, then Avast reports it is infected.

Is there something I have to change in settings so it notifies me when the archive is downloaded?

We will need more information to be able to help you:
- Which OS are you using? Is it up to date?
- What avast! version and VPS file (virus database) number?
- Do you use a firewall? Which one?
- Do you use any other proxy tool (like annonimizers)?
- Do you have any other antivirus installed in your system?
- Any other security programs that could interfere?
