Thank you for submitting this Wish Request. I have now moved this to the WAITING AREA.

Thanks again

Wouldn’t that be a security risk? As explorer would try to access information on the file like autoplay, generate thumbnails, etc. It would also create pop up spam unless you choose ignore & exclude option defeating the virus alert in the first place.

I have voted no, because for the inexperienced user, this would be a security risk.

I guess that an alternative option of displaying the full path to the file would be an easier/safer

I vote YES for showing it if ADVANCED USER mode is enabled (does it even exist? :stuck_out_tongue: ).
