    Next Question About Real-Time Scanning

    narfolistic

      Hi.  I asked a question about what "Real-Time Scanning" was, and I got an answer that said that it scans everything that I download to my computer.  Now the question is, WHEN does it scan the file I am downloading?  Does it scan it BEFORE it gets downloaded to my computer, or does it scan it AFTER it gets downloaded to my computer?  If it waits until AFTER the file is already in my computer to scan it, then it could be letting malware into my computer -- that doesn't sound good.

       

      Also, what happens if it finds malware in the file I am downloading?  Does it put a pop-up message on the screen telling me that it has detected malware in the file I am downloading?

       

      I got an answer to my last question with info on accessing help plus links for more info, but neither of those sources provided answers to either of the above questions.

       

      Thanks
