Hi there, I have just got Bullguard and so far think it is very good. For many years I had AVG and last switched to Kaspersky but found it troublesome and put a strain on my System so I thought I would give Bullguard a try and so far so good. It doesn't seem to use much of system when it is scanning and seems to be catching most nasty bugs.
But can anyone help with this problem. How do I configure Winrar to scan with Bullguard? At the moment, I have WinRar set up like this:-
Virus Scanner Name C:\Program Files\BullGuard Ltd\BullGuard\BgScan.exe
Virus Scanner Parameters "%f"
Is this right? because when I scan the download file within WinRar the scan is very very quick about a couple of seconds and when I used AVG and Kaspersky it took much longer and in fact Kaspersky used a Dos file to scan the document I had downloaded.
Honestly Guys is there no one going to HELP?....is there a Moderator of this Forum? Is no-one going to answer my problem.........please please please......someone out there................even a Moderator............please answer this genuine query/problem.
Alin, I tried that.......I really don't know if that works.
What happens is that a dos type screen appears with an address "C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe" and then about 20 seconds later it says "press any key to continue".......I thought it might have said that it has checked the files and finds no virus's and then said press any key to continue........but maybe that is the way it is set up to scan.......I don't know!!!!
Do you think that is it scanning the files when that screen appears? Is that it now working?
Have you had time to look at this problem and report? Is it now working and now correctly scanning the files (even though it doesn't state it has scanned the files).......your answer would be much appreciated.
I have bought two further editions of Bullguard AV for my two daughters Laptops as I find it a very good, light and easy Anti-virus Application to work with but I do need to know if this problem is now solved or are there some adjustments that Bullguard themselves need to do to make it work correctly.
The usage you mentioned in the first post is correct.
However, WR will not scan the files automatically - you'll need to tell it every time you wish the archive to be scanned.
That means you need to open the archive, then go to Tools - Scan archive for viruses and press OK.
We don't have a switch to make the scan silent (to display the end pop-up only if an infection was found), but we'll have one soon.Alex Sarchiz Senior Support Technician firstname.lastname@example.org www.bullguard.com
