scanning for a virus

by dgust In reply to Personal folders

Actually most virus scanning softwear scans all files on the computer - some do permit you to skip certain extensions. The problem with email is that the virus, worm or trojan horse often comes with a .exe or .vba extension so it looks like a regular file as it is usually innocently named. That is why the scanning software looks at just about everything for indicators of these types of programs. Best of luck.
