Default File Types Scanned?

I am using EPO 3.6.1 and VS 8.5I Patch 3 (not sure if this should go under VS or EPO so I put it here). Anyway in the VS 8.5 Catalog there is a policy called On-Access Default Processes Policies. Under the detection tab there is an area called what to scan. The 3 choices are All Files, Default + additional file types and Specified file types.

My questions is about the default + additional file types. Does anyone have a list of these default file types?

I searched for this with a few different queries and found nothing.

RE: Default File Types Scanned?

You can see those default file types in VS 8.5i by RIGHT clicking on the McAfee shield in the lower right corner, choose "On AccesScan Properties". When that loads, click on the "All Processes" icon on the left side, then select the "Detection" tab, then place a dot/tick in the "Default+additional file types" box, then click on the "Additions" button.. The column on the left will show you the current default file extensions being scanned.

Hope this helps.
