Good day!

I did notice that if setting Emsisoft protection in settings to recommended - the anti virus will not detect files that can be detected by BitDefender engine unless manual scan is being done on the folder/file.

If you set the level on higher, then the detection on file while it being extracted is done and it moves to quarantine. 

This is supposed to be ?

Files are only scanned under specific circumstances, and the "Scan level" setting controls how aggressive the real-time protection is in regards to scanning things.

The recommended setting is less aggressive because iOfficeAntiVirus (which is an API that Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, and many other programs use) allows files the be scanned before the browser finishes downloading them (or when opening an Office document), which means that there isn't a pressing need for Emsisoft Anti-Malware to scan files on its own each time they are opened.
