Flash Scan

Recommended Posts

Sorry that's in the honorary members area. so the link won't work for you,, heres the quote:

If you are a safe user then i would suggest just run a flash scan everytime the database updates.

The reasoning behind a flash scan is to majorly speed up the process of checking your computer with new signatures as the database is updated.

Flash scan concentrates on 2 areas of malware activity, loaded process's and loading points for those process's.

If there is malware there known to our DB then flash will detect one or both components and then users know its time to run a quick scan/fullscan to complete a removal.

Flash scans will not use the full spectrum of detections(e.g scanning files on the computer),removal and fixing like the quickscan but then if your not infected(on demand scan) that really is no issue what so ever and the time it takes for a quick PC check happens in a *flash* <stone me now for bad humour tongue.gif >

That said if you are using MBAM to clean up an infected computer go streight to Quick scan in regular mode for MBAM at its awesome best biggrin.gif
