IM Resident Shield
« on: August 25, 2004, 07:32:33 PM »
I like the idea of having ones' IM protected. But how if if I'm not running the standard app's (ICQ, MSN)? In my case I run Miranda. Is there any way to keep that protected on-access?

Probably if you set the sensitivity to 'High' level you will scan all files (even on run/open/modify), so you will be protected I suppose.
You can test trying to receive the eicar.com test virus (http://www.eicar.com/anti_virus_test_file.htm) through Miranda...  ;)

VLK,

Slightly ahead of Windows Longhorn  ;D But from previous threads I think it was September possibly October hopefully, if nothing crops up to delay it.

They didn't give a year though  ;D  ;D

It's really almost ready, we're just in no rush at the moment as the current version seems to be working pretty well and there are really no dependencies on v4.5...

... and I may add - I keep discovering new bugs every day  ;D
Don't worry, nothing really bad (since nobody found them until now) - just tiny glitches that's nice to have fixed.
