Where is the rootkit scanning option in 1.86 version?
Rootkit scanning has been removed from the UI as part of our continuous process of renovating our products and simplifying them. Rootkit scanning is still performed when Full System scan is run, so just the dedicated option has been removed.
Now, I can not run rootkit scan anymore, as Full System scan takes almost ten hours.
Thank you F-Secure, you're doing it wrong.
Hello Janiashvili,Ten hours sounds indeed quite lengthy for a full system scan. Have you tried how long the Full System scan takes if you disable the archive scanning from the manual scan settings?
Protection wise it is sufficient to scan the files in the archive only when they are accessed and this way preventing them on acting on your system. Scanning archives on demand is still useful in certain sceanrios, such as having a possibility to scan larger amount of downloaded archives for example.
Alternatively, you can use Hitman pro cloud scanning for rootkit scanning.
