Smart Scan keeps checking files that have not changed?

Recommended Posts

I have set up a daily Smart Scan to check selected folders. It seems to be checking the same files every day, even though they have not been updated. I though the Smart Scan would ignore files if they had not been updated since the previous scan. The 'Preserve last access timestamp' setting is OFF. Should this be turned on?

Thanks in advance.

What type of files is in that folder? If they are popular PE files (exe,dll,sys,ocx), they should be whitelisted and omitted from scanning as long as LiveGrid is enabled and working. Otherwise files will be rescanned after each update.

The fact that files have not changed and were not detected does not make them 100% innocuous.
