I have scheduled scans set weekly for ClamWin & Windows Defender while I sleep.

Yes, I know they don't have the best detections.

Dear Avast Forum,

Many thanks to the 99% of you who made positive contributions to this, and other, thread(s).

I am still keen to hear further discussion on who scans in safe mode and from a restricted user account.

Thanks again and to the 99% of you - keep up the sterling work lads!

Why would you want to scan from safe mode ?

Really only necessary if you have a problem with a normal scan that can't be dealt with in normal mode and crucially if you can't use the boot-time scan, e.g. win9x, winME old OSes.

Hi DavidR,

Thanks for your speedy reply and the information!

Would be interested to hear your view on scanning from an administrator account or a restricted user account in Window$.

Thanks,

I don't use a limited user account, terrible I know, so obviously I don't run scans as a limited user.

I run all my Internet facing applications browsers, email, etc. under DropMyRights (restricted user) works in winXP.
