Panda Antivirus can't count !

  1. Hi

    Panda Titanium 2006 antivirus can't seem to add up in Outlook Express. The number of messages listed as scanned is nowhere near the total and although quite a lot of files are scanned (i.e. presumably it means attachments) I don't know if this is accurate either.

    Obviously it would be nice to be reassured that all incoming attachmenst are being scanned, so can anyone tell me if this just means it ignores some messages or just that it can't add up and has in fact done a thorough job ?

    If not perhaps someone can direct me to another forum where I'm more likely to get answer.

    thanks

    It could be that Panda doesn't bother with scanning "safe" messages - letters in plain text and without attachments can't contain any malware.
