CAV Blocks my Compaq 610 Notebook at 96/97% Full system scan (Linux Mint 14)

CAV v1.1.268025.1 Blocks my Compaq 610 Notebook at 96/97% Full system scan (Linux Mint 14)

Processor : Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 560 [at] 2.13GHz
Memory : 2056MB (988MB used)
Operating System : Linux Mint 14 Nadia

Resolution : 1366x768 pixels
OpenGL Renderer : Mesa DRI Intel(R) 965GME/GLE x86/MMX/SSE2
X11 Vendor : The X.Org Foundation

My hardware shouldn’t be a problem, when I had Pear Linux 6, there where no problems with CAV

At first COMODO Antivirus for Linux (CAVL) v1.1.268025.1 works great when i do a system scan for Crytical Areas. and blocks the virus testfiles from Eicar: .

But when I run my first, second, etc Full System Scan at 96/97% it freezes my System on whatever file it’s scanning.
So for now I will run a crytical areas scan on a daily basis and use realtime protection, that works fine.

Any suggestions let me know, Thanks !!

I guess I just have to wait until the next update from CAV to see if that helps, For now i can’t figure out what gives me that problem.

It doesn’t seem likely to me that it is the % complete that prompts the freeze. Does it stop at a particualr file or folder?

Does this thread bear any resemblance;msg616801#msg616801

  • ie if you exclude /usr (or whatever yours freezes at) will it then work - and then can you scan /usr (or whatever) separately?

Thx Maglin, just solved the problem by adding several exclusions, the problem was my /home/* folder. Now the full system scan runs perfect.

Now when I scan /home/* with Scan Items, CAV scanner disappears from the screen, but when I scan /home// with Scan Items that works fine.
