Hi johnsmithbill,
Go to Settings and do the following amendments (hover over the ?-marks to the right of the options for getting verbose descriptions):
Blocking Mode = OFF
On Detection of Malicious Files = Ask Me
On Detection of Suspicious Files = Ask Me
Scan Archive Files = OFF
Scan Packed Files = OFF
In fact, these settings can permanently be kept, but Scan Archive/Packed Files = ON is preferable in the long run for thorough (= unfortunately long) scanning!
If you are completely sure, that your software to be installed is 100% clean thru other AV (online) scanning, then you can temporarily set:
Monitor Program Install = OFF
Monitor Program Start = OFF
Remember, to set them back to:
Monitor Program Install = ON
Monitor Program Start = ON,
otherwise Immunet will not protect you at all!!!
Cheers,
sweidre
PS. Await a second opinion by an administrator (RobT, Anthony, Millard etc.) prior to action! DS
