Difference between real time scan and manual scanning.

I am using f-secure client security 14.02. Some files are getting detected as malicious during real time scan but when I gave manul scan using f-secure agent scan option and then malware scan, the same file is showing as cleaned and scan report says its no harmful item found.

so my question is what is the difference between these two and which f-secure scan engines are involved during these two scans.

    Hello Decent_rider1,

    There should not be any differences in those 2 scan types, except different policy tunings, as they are separate for real time and manual scan.

    You can select different file extension sets to scan for example, or enable/disable scan inside archives.

    If you think there is an issue, please, reproduce it with the debug logging enabled, contact support, and note the timings.

    Additionally I would recommend to upgrade your product to newer version.

    Best regards,
