Virus scan and Last Accessed time stamp

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


when using my current virus scan program (Symantec) to search a specified
directory on my Windows XP computer, the "Last Accessed" time stamp is NOT
altered. This I think is good!

But I seem to recall that I checked the same thing earlier, perhaps with
another virus scan program (Norton?), and then found that the "Last
Accessed" time stamp WAS altered when performing a scan.

Anyone here with any knowledge about this?
