Unwanted program detections
The on-access, on-demand, and email scanners detect unwanted programs based on the Unwanted Programs Policy you configured. When a detection occurs, the scanner that detected the potentially unwanted program applies the action that you configured on the Actions tab for that scanner.
Review the information in the log file, then decide whether to take any of these additional actions:
- Fine-tune scanning items — This makes your scans more efficient.
- Exclude it from detection — If a legitimate program was detected, you can configure it as an exclusion.
- Add it to the user-defined detection list — If an unwanted program was not detected, you can add it to the user-defined detection list.
- Submit a sample to McAfee Labs for analysis — If the scanner detects something that you think it should not detect or does not detect something that you think it should, you can send a sample to McAfee Labs.
