In tray icon context menu is the "gaming mode", "Start Flashscan" etc..
Would it be possible to integrate "block mode" to even.

In Some applications (online Games) does of the "block mode" slow down the machine.

Hi Sveni,

I'll suggest it, but just to elaborate a bit on Block Mode, Immunet has two 'block-type' modes: active and passive.

Active (also known as 'Block Mode: ON') is when the files will not be allowed to execute until they have passed inspection: this is by default turned off, since it has a moderate impact on performance (for most uses this is not a problem, but for activities like Gaming, Streaming, others, this is quite cumbersome).

Passive (default, Block Mode: OFF) is when the files might (depending on certain other constraints) be allowed to execute before they have passed inspection.

In both cases, the queries to the engines are made for the detection, but in Active, Immunet will wait till the query returns the disposition before allowing the file to continue.

Cheers,

-Jose

Thank you Jose for the explanation.

PS: Today I have installed Immunet on WIN8.1.(my father's computer)
No problems, all fine ;)
Are the following settings okay for optimal safety and performance?

Hey,

I would personally keep ETHOS and SPERO active. These two engines are fairly light weight on their own, so their performance impact is quite small, and the added safety does not hurt.

TETRA and Clam are the two heavier ones, so one of the two activate at one time is usually best (most people, like in your settings, use TETRA).

I agree with Jose, it's always best to keep the cloud engines (ETHOS & SPERO) running no matter what other detection engine is enabled (ClamAV for the free users or TETRA for the Plus users).

Cheers, Ritchie...
