POLL: Scan Specified Extensions

Almost every AV program has the setting to choose what files extensions to be scan during every scan (including the real-time scanner).

I mean that you can check what files your AV will scan (for each scan type) :

  • Define realtime scanner to always scan .mp4, .mp3, .exe, .jar, .class
  • Define realtime scanner to not to scan (exclude) .RAR, .ZIP archives
  • Define full scan to scan all extensions except to “.IDONTKNOW”
    (current AV exclusions is too global)

A good example from avast:

I think it is a basic feature and I don’t understand how it is not yet integrated.

So what do you think? DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!
