Virus found during scan, no show in log
I did a full scan last night and first of all it took more than 7 hrs, and then during the scan the progress window showed that it had found 2 viruses. However, when the scan was finished there was nothing in the scan log about those found viruses. It said that 0 viruses were found.
I am a bit suspiscious as to what this means...does/could it mean that those initially found viruses could be of the kind that counteract antivirus programmes, and that they might still be hiding in there?
Maybe you able to do next steps:
-> Goes to main UI of F-Secure installation. Open Quarantine (as part of Tools) storage and check if there have something.
-> Goes to Settings and check "History of Removal and Spyware" (Removal History) and check if there have something.
Just potentially can be situation, when during scan it was detected, but removed by real-time scanning.
If not.... maybe you need to check more.. because it's of course strange situation. Some kind of trying to repeat it or re-get log-file from current "last" FULL scan for system.
And re-check settings about "manual scan" (such as.. if there all OK and without any exclusions). Such as better to use advanced scan settings (which will be slower about scan-process, but better for protection time to time) and re-check settings of exclusions lists for manual scan and for real-time scanning. Just as suggestions.6 1Like
Just forget to add some of dreams.....
Also potentially can be explanation... if you have set-up for Scheduled scan.
Such as.. during "scan as full" also started Scheduled scan and it's goes be more speedy and remove malicious files automatically (design of scheduled scan). So when... Manual Scan end... it was already not available to clean/detect something.. such as.. it was removed by Scheduled scan.
But it's just as suggestion... and if you have Scheduled Scanning (turn ON) and if it can be with your situation.
