So your telling everyone that scheduled scanning is pointless because your av products with real time scanning are perfect? That is recipe for disaster, no impact on a user that isn't there running a full scan every hour doesn't make sense either, using all of the capabilities of the products is bes

Sewell, Cathy (csewell mbari org) (1 replies)
From discussions with the anti-virus vendors during various crises over the years, I've learned that the real-time scans are optimized for speed, while the scheduled scans are focused on thoroughness. This means, disturbingly, that malware can elude the real-time scan, yet be caught by the more-tho

You should still run a scheduled scan sometimes things are missed in between dat file updates, if you run the scan late at night there should be minimal impact.

I recommend it. It's possible that a workstation could be infected prior
to the release of an update that includes that virus signature. I've
noticed that the real-time scan will sometimes not detect what's present
on the file system without a full disk scan.

Some real-time scans can be throttled d

If we have already implemented virus scan at the gateway, on the mail
server, on individual servers, and real time scan on workstations/laptops,
do we still need scheduled, e.g., weekly, scan on workstations and laptops
as well as servers?

Schdeuled scans really slow down some machines.

I am very sorry, but I disagree with " but in all fairness no matter which
product you go with, their all signature based, consequently some spyware
will slip through" statement.

Spyware scanning is nothing like virus scanning other than the using of
signatures to figure out what is and isn't spyw

As some have already mentioned the concept of "proactive vs reactive,"
what about solutions like PivX PreEmpt, McAfee Entercept, or Cisco

some point, the cost of hoping that your anti-virus/worm/spyware covers

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't MS Anti-spyware "beta" software?
Does it not specifically say it is beta and use for testing only, etc.?

Did the original poster provide the MS team with any info on what they
felt was missed so the developers can continue to develop the "beta" in

Nathan, et al,
(Apologies in advance for a lengthy post.) I agree that a proactive
approach is preferred, and a number of different techniques are
available. I believe in multiple layers of defense, and using these, a
majority of spyware/adware/crapware is entirely eliminated.

I know it is fun and easy to disparage MS products, but is it possible
that other spyware vendors go overboard? Not all cookies are bad. Is it
possible that some of this might not be considered spyware.
You mention Zedo. I bet they don't think their product is spyware. Have
you been to their websit

I find that the best measure for proactive treatment is to ensure that
your users are running with minimal user rights.

If you're running the system as admin, you're bound to get into trouble.

If you do have specific software that only works with administrator
rights, take a look at the software r
