File Scanning issue - no eicar detection after downloading test file

Hi, I was following the 'how to test' guide and did not get an immediate detection after downloading the eicar test file.

I scanned through the right click menu and detection was then made. I also then ran a manual scan after deleting the document and this correctly picked up that the file had been removed and cleared the event in GUI.

  • Hi Brian, I would expect that it would have been blocked from launching in Text Editor as as your SDU shows that the extensions are enabled and configured correctly. The last obvious thing to try would be a reboot, and I should have asked about it first as this version does require an a reboot after installation to hook the extensions properly.
