I am trying to find out exactly what process occurs when a VirusScan DAT update occurs.
I am aware of the 3 files on the PC (AVVCLEAN, AVVNAMES and AVVSCAN) which are updated by the new DAT, but what happens next in the process?
Specifically, I have devices with low RAM (512mb) and these show problems around the update time and I wold like to understand the process fully before I look to introduce Low Risk Policies and Lower the Thread priority that are mentioned in several KB articles.
Any indication of the process undertaken would be much appreciated.
