Use AntiVirus Program
« on: June 21, 2004, 04:47:07 PM »
I am using iMesh and in the option menu, it says... use AntiVirus Program...  I am suppose to open explorer and chose the prog I want to use...  

Does avast automatically work with iMesh or should I add the prog in the options menu...

For future reference, what is the prog I should be using...

I know it's in this folder:

C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4

But there are a lot of progs and files in this folder, which is the correct one?

What are all those others...

Should I only use ashquick for P2P or for ALL progs that want me to choose the use Antivirus option?

ashQuick is the "Explorer Extension" module that scans the file passed on the command-line. So, you can use it for any application that asks for such a tool.
On the other hand, you can use the internal functions of avast! itself - e.g. the P2P Shield; when it's employed, there shouldn't be any need to specify the antivirus in the application (you would be scanning the same file twice).
