Re: Avira setup question
| What are the pros and cons of setting up Avira's Guard to scan when
| reading AND writing? Is it better to just do one or the other?
You do both.
Scanning whiling writing helps to prevent malware and malicious scripts to be on
computer. Like when you broswse a web site or download from Usenet.
Scanning whiling reading can help prevent malware from getting the PC infected.
when you place media in your computer like CDROMs and Flash Drives.
Together they are known as "On Access" scanning and they are an integral part of
malware protection scemes.
