Scan of compound files

A common method of concealing viruses is to embed them into compound files: archives, databases, etc. To detect viruses that are hidden in this way a compound file should be unpacked, which can significantly lower the scan speed.

You can enable or disable the scan of attached archives and limit the maximum size of archives to be scanned.

If your computer is not protected by any local network software (you access the Internet directly without a proxy server or a firewall), it is not recommended to disable the scanning of attached archives.

To configure the settings for the scan of compound files:

  1. Open the application settings window.
  2. In the left part of the window, in the Protection Center section, select the Mail Anti-Virus component.
  3. Click the Settings button in the right part of the window.
  4. Use the General tab in the displayed window to define necessary settings.
