Do you need to have checked First Chance Protection

Recommended Posts

How important is this? on some of my clients computers it really slows down bootup times.

How important is it?

If they are using the newest version, it will barely slow it down. You can uncheck the Scan Services part if you want.

which part? there are 3

startup

shutdown

and system services? you mean that one? and if yes why?

and it will not interfere with any antivirus protection that checks on bootup and shutdown?

and please explain exactly what it does or doesn't do?

thanks

Robin - if you want more protection, they all 3 should be checked, if you want less protection, uncheck the services as that will load faster.

FWIW "Scan system services" is unchecked by default. AFAIK SAS doesn't conflict with any AV software.

First Chance Prevention examines over 50 critical points of your system each time your system starts up and shuts down to eliminate threats before they have a chance to infect and infiltrate your system.

1) Scan on startup scans for malware while Windows is starting.

2) Scan on shutdown scans for malware running in the background while Windows is shutting down.

3) Scan system services scans all system services for malware.

How important is it? That depends on how taxing it is on the system and whether or not the time saved is worth risking an infection. Only you and your client can answer that.
