Idea : A default screensaver, that scans on "idle" and telling how to make sec. passwords.


As subject...

When user is back, the "idle" scanning is stopped, and when the "idle"/screensaver is active again, the scanning continues, from where the scanning left last time. - I mean that it coud allways scan system files, and then go to where it left last time..


I hope you understand what i mean Smiley Happy

    I just set my computer to scan when the computer has been idle for five minutes. That's about all I'd need. Of course, if I'm only gone six minutes . . .

    Yes, i´m  aware of the function in FSIS, BUT..


    The function shoud be as a normal user would do.

    Looking in the ordinary screen saver function, under Windows !


    And the is none !


    And, i recommend, that if the user doesn't have any screen saver set, then til FSIS installation program, ask user to set it, in the installation progress...


    Thast my idea Smiley Happy

    regular scans do not provide any additional security compared to on-demand-scans. They just make you sleep better, while wasting performance and energy!


    If there is a good reason to launch a manual scan it is because of a security problem.

    If you have a security problem, then you should rather let the scanner do its job first and not start regular work in the foreground.
