Enable safe USB device removal while scanning


Recommended Posts

Using Win XP SP3


When I connect a USB flash drive to my computer, ESET begins a scan, as it should.


The problem is that I'm usually done transferring files well before ESET has completed its scan, and when I try to safely remove the USB device I get an error message that "the device ... cannot be stopped right now." I have to wait till the scan is complete, and only then can I properly and safely dismount the USB device.


As this is a work computer, I cannot "Temporarily disable protection" since I do not have the password (nor should I).


Is there another way that I can suspend ESET so I can safely dismount the USB device?


If not, may I suggest that this be considered for future versions? Perhaps you could add the safely remove option to the ESET menu (Abort scan and dismount USB device) while it is scanning.

By default, you are asked for an action when a new removable medium is detected. You can choose not to scan it if you know that you'll remove it in a while.
