    There is a bug where some USB devices that do not use standard filesystem have the option to scan them in right-click context menu. When trying to use this option you get an error and scan does not start. This is fixed in (soon to come) 18.5 release where the option is no longer there.

    non riesce da giorni l'analisi delle chiavette usb, quando le introduco sulle porte, ho provato a disattivare DEFENDER ma senza risultati.

    Anche l'analisi dei file o unità del PC da lo stesso risultato:


    Qualche idea su dove cercare il problema?

    Hi @User_95863

    Welcome to the Community page. Thank you for your post.

    We only have English and Finnish language support on our Community page.

    However, regarding your issue, may I confirm with you that you do not have an option to "Scan for viruses" after plugging in your USB stick when right-clicking?

    If yes, kindly go to this link to uninstall by using the Uninstallation tool and reinstall SAFE again

    If not, kindly provide us with more details of the issue. You may also attach a screenshot to this post.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you and stay safe.
