Is it possible to change the auto-protect behaviour, do not delete my (infected) files automatically?
Some of my files are deleting always, however Im almost sure, they arent infected.
Hi TestUser -
Are you using NIS 2009?
I think it would be better to *first* tell us about the files which are always being deleted, so it can be checked without leaving your system in a vulnerable state. Specific exclusions could then be made for the files which are not actually a valid threat.
I have NIS2009. These files are some test c_r__ck files :)
KIS2009 didnt find any infection in these files, also some virus checker (like KIS) allows the user to decide on deletion.
There are many file in many different directories, all are with exe extension.
To the best of my knowledge, you can't configure Auto-Protect to ignore all the files automatically unless you define them in the exclusions. Also, it depends upon the risk level, whether it is medium/high or low risk security event.
Similar discussion is seen in the following thread.
Under the NIS 2009 computer settings you are able to set norton's response to low-risk detections to anyone of three settings. Remove, Ignore, or Ask Me. By default though all medium and high risk threats that are detected are immediately put into quarantine (which for the sake of security I think you want).
Now any files you do not want scanned by the full system or quick scans simply add those files to the list of scan exclusions, also found in the NIS 2009 computer settings.
