About settings File Guard

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Perhaps my question will seem naive ...:blush:

But still: by default, it's worth "checking only files with specific extensions" Yes, their (extensions) can be edited.

A long time interested in the question, why exactly? To speed up the scan speed?

But then not all files are checked! Is it possible (and does it make sense?) To uncheck and check ALL files?

Why check file extensions that normally do not cause a problem ? It would speed up scans not to allow every file extension although with cpu speeds today, one

may not notice any difference.

Only certain types of files can be executed, and only certain types of files generally contain malicious code and exploits. Scanning everything isn't necessary the vast majority of the time.
