Ok I can see an improvement in scan speeds, but how can it scan 8+ gigs in under a second... Sounds too good to be true

Ok, I was wondering about this myself. So does this mean that when Us users of say. MKV format. That format of video file is pretty solid. But, does it mean it can be turned back on if there are problems showing up with the format?

I posted a similar thread moments ago.
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=81048.0

So does this mean these video formats are not being viral attacked? Thus the Development Techs turn off or turn down the level of scanning for them?

I mean, seriously 20gb is a LOT when I know it used to take almost 1 minute to scan 1 file at around 500mb.

I admit I am paranoid sometimes but is it even scanning them? I'm rather skeptical. I don't mean that in a rude way. I just find it strange that they turn off the scanning of these formats. I rather waste my time scanning them than having them skipped altogether =/
