this gives me a question
the scan limit is 20mg
so what happen if the virus size is 25?
i know is a very lager size for a virus but no impossible
so if i execute a malware.exe of 25mb and thinking its safe clic in allow for no sanbox?
what the responder says is true. the Av should pick it up when opening, but it still doesn't make sense to me to have the defaults set so low with gig+ rar files we often use these days. (on demand scans)
i gladly accept slower scan speeds with full scan capabilities by default. if people don't need large files scanning? then what difference would it make any difference to them anyway. not run into anything like that with any other AV before. they all scanned full capabilities default.
comodo would function the same speed with small file scans. or am i missng something?
we scan what we scan small or large and if people don't need large file scannning would it make any difference to them if large files are default instead of small?
or am i missing something about their engine?
i've not investigated comodo's scan engine....so maybe i don't quite comprehend?
maybe the engine runs much slower if large files are defaulted? that doesn't make sense to me tho. the speed would be according to the size of the file and therefore why would it slow anything down having defaulted large file enabled?
still think no limitations should be set default with ANY antivirus!
i'm not a low-intel person....that's why i didn't even cross my mind that an antivirus settings had to be changed for it to function fully for any size or type. never ran into that with any other AV
and a couple of others tried
so it seems comodo is by itself on this one and it puzzles me why
was thinking a bit and what if you have a 5+gig file and want to scan without opening. with comodo limits you simply cannot scan it
if you give the file to someone to use you want it verified clean before they open it.
with such limitations in comodo you cannot
(just a thought--and yes i do that stuff)
appreciate the responses
