    Default How do I prevent ZASS to scan a program?

    Hi,I can see that there is an exception list in the Antivisus/Spyware advanced opions, but no program can be added manually to the list.
    Skype calls are scanned, and I can see the 2 scanning processes using a lot of memory and some CPU in task manager.
    I do not want Skype or other programs
    like Skype, VSee,
    ooVoo and so on
    to be scanned, and not even in the IM options they can be selected..
    Will this be fixed in next release?
    Regards

    You can do this in the scan targets section. Uncheck the directory entry you want left out.And as there is no problem, there is nothing to be fixed. But one thing you may want to think about. If you don't scan those folders, and you just happen to get a virus in there, then there will be no way that ZA will actually be able to remove the root infection.

    Thanks for the answer.. but it's not the folders, I wrote about.I do not want ZASS to "scan" the activity generated by the call.It seems during a call the "scanning processes on my HT P4" it's very active.
    Anyway I cannot see any place where to choose the directory o scan.. but maybe I looked in the wrong place :8}Regards
