Quite a bit over the forum when I see helpers having people run SAS, they 90-100% of the time have the following (or something similar):
Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
Close browsers before scanning.
Scan for tracking cookies.
Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
When I got the program, it came with a few other options checked by default, such as:
Scan Alternate Data Streams
Use Kernal Direct File Access (recommended)
Use Kernal Direct Registry Access (recommended)
Use Direct Disc Access (recommended)
Is there any particular reason it is recommended to uncheck these? Does it improve scanning time, detection rates, or.. well, anything of the sort? I've left them checked myself, but their actual purpose or the reason they are not advised to be checked has been nagging me.
