Ideas For Immunet From Testing The Latest Client


Recommended Posts

Immunet rocks! Thank you. I am a Windows 10 x64 user.


  1. More transparency on what is being scanned (what is using 5-15% cpu) ... my cpu is now idle and it stopped after a couple reboots. I recently updated Windows 10 to the new  pre-release version which it may be scanning updated files.
    1. build into a toast popup the ability to whitelist or contain items that are stuck with scanning
  2. allow gaming mode to suspend background scans if it does not already
  3. block/delete/contains primarily happens with downloading apps with macros etc... instead of auto deleting and often without a popup/alert ... always post a toast popup message with the ability to contain, delete, whitelist
  4. upgrade the whitelist option for files/folders" add to exclusion list. Initially I would hit ok and not realize if you do not click add afterwards it did not commit.
  5. ability to save settings, whitelists to a cloud account if we want for backup 
  6. allow export of settings so we can help kids learn what folders to whitelist for gaming (blizzard/battlenet/steam etc)
  7. is there an antimalware plugin available? any zeroday exploit plugins for browsers?
  8. is clamav needed? it is confusing if immunet is using cpu or clam av or if clamav helps immunet be more effective. any studies/explanations on benefits of clam av on/off? 
  9. cloud submit files for whitelisting or cloud submit files that are known malware for further analysis (once blocked allow upload if feature does not exist already)
  10. whitelist adwcleaner and other populare antimalware tools
  11. any cpu optimizations possible? the immunet service in windows 10x64 often causes sfc.exe to idle at 5-10% cpu usage. Possibly increase memory/ram usage to offset cpu usage?
    1. is immunet rescanning files ? possibly create a local db hash recognition of each scanned file, timestamp created/modified, hash etc. then once scanned (full scan or over time scan) have it flag the db with a  last scanned date... then periodically re-scan these files less similar to a differential backup (focus on new content) . this would allow immunet to idle better if it is not background scanning. 
  12. have cloud syncing of global white lists with some algorithm for review. Possibly this whitelist method would be less blanketing than an exclusion... such as whitelisted by specific version, hash etc. however it could be prone to pollution in which malware creators work to get their apps whitelisted before exposing it to the public for utilization. 
  13. is their a registry av / malware scanner? 
  14. update the immunet background of the app to the new red theme which rocks. 
  15.  anyway to capture which files are being deleted from multiple downloads? often the download files that are deleted will not have a matching name to the final download that was planned.
  16. other scanner options
    1. hidden files
    2. dlls, drivers, services, smart windows folder scanning, user profile scanning, popular spots (an ultra fast scan users can scan daily)... 
  17. a. pup removal from adwcleaner  (hanvt had it since immunet)... immunet may be doing a good job already
  18. is there a root kit scanner? is one even needed?
  19. when computer is active (ms office, gaming , browsing) allow less random background scans (this may be true already)... then allow scanning when idle for x amount of time (not watching a movie)... when the cpu for the system is less <3% for 30min etc. immunet may already handle this great just wanted to write it out in case not.


Alot of these features I believe exist in some form since immunet is really 4+ antiviruses or so in one... immunet, clam av, two cloud services etc.  Thank you for this project!
