Note that this can result in what may be false positives), scan files beginning with a dot (.*), scan directories recursively, scan files larger than 20 MB, use heuristics scanning, check for updates upon startup;

  • There is a scheduler for scanning for viruses and updating virus signatures;
  • There is a log of the results of past checks;
