Objects

The Objects section allows you to define which files will be scanned for infiltrations.

Symbolic links - (Computer scan only) scans files that contain a text string that is interpreted and followed by the operating system as a path to another file or directory.

Email files - (not available in Real-time Protection) scans email files.

Mailboxes - (not available in Real-time Protection) scans user mailboxes in the system. Incorrect use of this option may result in a conflict with your email client. To learn more about advantages and disadvantages of this option, read the following knowledgebase article.

Archives - (not available in Real-time Protection) scans files compressed in archives (.rar, .zip, .arj, .tar, etc.).

Self-extracting archives - (not available in Real-time Protection) scans files which are contained in self-extracting archive files.

Runtime packers - unlike standard archive types, runtime packers decompress in memory. When this is selected, standard static packers (e.g. UPX, yoda, ASPack, FGS) are also scanned.
