Adjusting the Active Virus Control protection

If you notice that Active Virus Control detects legitimate applications often, you should set a more permissive protection level.

To adjust the Active Virus Control protection, follow these steps:

  1. Open the CompuClever Antivirus Plus window.

  2. Access the Protection panel.

  3. Click the Antivirus module.

  4. In the Antivirus window, select the Shield tab.

  5. Make sure Active Virus Control is turned on.

  6. Drag the slider along the scale to set the desired protection level. Use the description on the right side of the scale to choose the protection level that better fits your security needs.

    [Note] Note

    As you set the protection level higher, Active Virus Control will require fewer signs of malware-like behavior to report a process. This will lead to a higher number of applications being reported and, at the same time, to an increased likelihood of false positives (clean applications detected as malicious).
