Doubts about Scan settings

Recommended Posts

Hi. I have doubts about scanning configuration options. There are two that say "ignore files larger than 4mb" and "ignore nonexecutable files". Should I leave those options checked or unchecked?

The default options are set to handle the malware we see in our labs and on user's systems.

I see, maybe the reason why the "ignore files larger than 4mb" was set as default is because the size of adware/spywares are not larger than that, I mean the spywares and other threats are only inside files up to 4mb.

And concerning the "ignore nonexecutable files" option, maybe because threats are not inside nonexecutable files.
