Just a few questions please:

 

To start with it seems to only run a "flash scan" and I can't figurte out how to have it scan the whole drive, it that right and how does that work?

 

Also I noticed in another thread some mention that you couldn't delete the quarantine until version two, so how do I tell what version I have now?

 

Thanks

I think your comment that you can only run a "flash scan" tells me that you are running 1.0.26. But the About box should tell you which version you are running. It seems like we're on target for the first week in August to get ClamAV for Windows 2.0 out; hopefully no surprises pop-up to delay that.

Hi,

 

In my Immunet FREE, I have scheduled a Flash scan every hour (every hour is, for now, non-existent as an option in Immunet) , by scheduling Immunet once per day at 3 PM and then modified it my operating system (task) to once per hour! It is light-weight and does not use many resources or much CPU!

 

But how effeicient Flash scan is, I do not know, in fact!

 

Cheers,

Flash scan only scans running processes and the files and registry related to them. So all it's really going to tell you is if you are running a piece of malware.

Hi Millard,

I am just testing, if I can a have a frequent light-weight scheduled scan in the backgroud and not hampering other softwares! I have just started with the simple and short Flash scan and it worked very well in the background during the month of July. (Today there is a temporary bug in the "Last Scanned" field, that is said to be fixed by tomorrow).

In the future, I will use only Flash scanning at computer startup or at user login!

 

Then I will continue a bit further with frequent schedules of my System drive (C:\). For now the scan of the whole drive (C:\) takes a much longer time, than my thorough scan using NOD32! So I hope, that Immunet will develop a faster scan engine with customized options, so that the scan of the c-drive will be accomplished within an hour! My target is to have scheduled scans of the c-drive once per hour in the background.

 

To schedule frequent scans of my whole computer I will not do at all! The scan of the whole computer I will do manually beforeI going to sleep and the computer is almost idle, let's say once a month!

 

I will test frequent scheduling step by step, because in the meantime I am testing frequent scheduled updates & scans in the background of Malwarebyres Anti-Malware, as well! (for now, only Flash Scannning)

 

Cheers,

sweidre

Responding to the nobody question I think you have version 1.

Hi NOBODY,

 

1. What version you have?

To see what version you have go to Immunet Main Screen:

Immunet Main Screen -> Go to the bottom -> Hover over the word "About" and you will get a popup telling you, what version you have, in my case: "Immunet Protect 2.9.11.12"

 

2. Search New Version

Immunet Main Screen -> Click on "Update Now"

 

3. Types of Scans

Immunet Main Screen -> Click on "Scan Now"

You will see 4 options:

 

  • Flash Scan
  • Custom Scan
  • Full Scan
  • (Rootkit Scan, for PLUS version only)

4. Scan of whole drive or folder

Click on Custom Scan (see item 3 above) -> Choose Folder -> This Computer -> Select the drive you want to scan or select a certain subfolder only

 

5. Schedule a Scan in Immunet

Immunet Main Screen -> Scan Now -> Scan Settings -> Scheduled Scan -> Add New Scheduled Scan -> Select from curtain menu: every day, week, or month -> Select from curtain menu: do a Full Scan, Flash Scan, or Custom Scan. If custom Scan is selected, Click on the "Browse "- button to select drive or folder.

When finished, click on "Create"- button -> Now the schedule is saved in Immunet (but also as a Task in Windows!)

6. Edit the Scan from Immunet (see item 5 above) in Windows

The Scan created in Immunet appears as a Task in your MS Operating System (Windows). This Task can be changed as you like in Windows.

 

Cheers,

sweidre
