Re: Automatically Scanning Downloaded Files
« Reply #15 on: May 31, 2012, 03:01:16 AM »
Well, I directed Download Statusbar to use ashQuick.exe, but I'm not seeing any scanning activity on Avast's monitor.  Can anyone help me get this (or another) attachment to auto-scan all downloaded files?

In Download Statusbar's virus-scan window there is a line:
"use %1 in the arguments for the file to scan"

Is this some type of instruction that I've overlooked?

I appreciate the help.

It doesn't require parameters other than the full path to ashQuick.exe.

Hmm, well that's how it'd set up but I don't see any scanning activity when downloading (using avast's live monitors).

Unfortunately I can't test it, I don't use the Download Statusbar, I use the Download Them All add-on and it doesn't have a scan option.

As I have mentioned earlier, since the web shield and file system shield would be scanning files I don't see the point in scanning all downloads.
