I really like CAVS. It operates just as I like my AV to work.
Problem, it jams my backup program, called Second Copy 7. Second Copy backs up my files into a ZIP archive. During backup and zipping, it creates a randomly generated temp file with no extension. Second COpy can not create the final ZIP file as CAVS blocks the temp file. Since the temp file has no extension, I can not white list it. I white listed the entire folder, and that worked, but that leaves me a little vulnerable.
Wish, When I get a hit, I would like for there to be an option to white list the allegedly infected file. I have several small utilities on my system that are totally harmless, but CAVS does not like their activity. (like revealing forgotten passwords, etc.)
Question: Since CAVS is anti-Spyware, do I still need to run BOClean, or does it include all of BOClean’s functionality?
No problem. As I understand it, and from my experience, most viruses/malware look for specific (pre-set) files/locations to reside in or infect. They do frequently use temp files, but when they do, they randomly create a file, rather than utilize an existing one.
If you have created a custom folder to use, my guess (strictly a guess) is that it’s not too big of a risk.
