View Full Version : Using virus scanner

02-13-2008, 08:03 AM
If I want my virus scanner to automatically scan my downloaded files, can I set that up in DownloadStudio or do I do it in my virus scanner. (I had a virus a few weeks ago and I am really paranoid now)

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions anyone can offer.

If your virus checker supports command line arguments then DownloadStudio can scan the files after the download has completed. Go to the Options dialog in DownloadStudio and in the 'After Download' section you can set up the details of your virus checker here. You will need to know the full path and filename for your virus checkers executable.

If you are not sure if your virus checker supports command line arguments, please consult your virus checkers documentation.

It is also likely that your virus checker will automatically be scanning files when they are downloaded or executed, in this case it is not necessary to set up the after download scan in DownloadStudio.
