Hi Mike, and welcome (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

When you right click on a file, do you get the option shown below, to run a Bitdefender contextual scan?

The forum can be a little confusing, as you may have wanted to thread this in the Antivirus Forum: http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?showforum=313

If you have any further questions, please fee free to ask (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Hi columbo----Thanks for the reply. YES, I do see SCAN with Bitdefender when I right click on a file. Then when I follow it through, I see that CONTEXTUAL scan does appear. The reason I asked about a CONTEXTUAL scan was because the one time when I did a full scan, it found 60 items that could not be scanned because they were password protected etc. and was told to do a contextual scan on each file. etc. Now when I scan it does not say anything about thoses 60 items that are password protected. How do I find those 60 files that are password protected. or is it NOT a problem. Thanks again for the reply. Mike

Hi Mike, glad to follow up with you.

The files may not show in a secondary system scan, as the were probably cached and no longer will be scanned unless accessed, or Bitdefender in one of its updates, "unloads" the cache files, and allows them to be scanned again. That info can be found here: http://forum.bitdefender.com/index.php?showtopic=18526

As far as as scanning password protected files, that info. can be found here: http://www.bitdefender.com/support/Passwor...-items-422.html

If you haven't cleared your scan logs, you can find the original scan by going into Bitdefender console/Events/Antivirus and click on the System scan you had completed, and under Subject, it will give you the option to look at the scan log to see where the password protected files are. You could then scan them as per the link above, if you wish to. Otherwise they will be automatically scanned by BD when their accessed or opened, so no worries there, and thus not a problem (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Hope this helped,

Columbo

Thanks again for the reply, columbo. Yes, I have already cleared the scan logs, so I can't go back and check them.
I guess this is NOT an issue. I do have another question about a ficticious email I get on a daily basis, but I will post that question in the antivirus section. Thanks, Mike

You're welcome Mike (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

See you on the "other side", the antivirus side (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
