Cleaning

Cleaning settings determine the manner in which the scanner cleans infected files. There are 3 levels of cleaning:

No cleaning – Infected files are not cleaned automatically. The program will display a warning window and allow you to choose an action.

Standard cleaning – The program will attempt to automatically clean or delete an infected file. If it is not possible to select the correct action automatically, the program will offer a choice of follow-up actions. The choice of follow-up actions will also be displayed if a predefined action could not be completed.

Strict cleaning – The program will clean or delete all infected files (including archives). The only exceptions are system files. If it is not possible to clean a file, you will receive a notification and be asked to select the type of action to take.

Warning: In the Default Standard cleaning mode, entire archive files are deleted only if all files in the archive are infected. If an archive contains legitimate files as well as infected files, it will not be deleted. If an infected archive file is detected in Strict cleaning mode, the entire archive will be deleted even if clean files are present.

Archive scanning

In the Default Standard cleaning mode, entire archive files are deleted only if all files in the archive are infected. If an archive contains legitimate files as well as infected files, it will not be deleted. If an infected archive file is detected in Strict cleaning mode, the entire archive will be deleted even if clean files are present.
