Luke Filewalker

During a system scan, the status window Luke Filewalker appears, which provides you with exact information on the status of the scan.

If the option interactive is selected in the configuration of the System Scanner in the group Action on detection, you are asked what is to be done with a detected virus or unwanted program. If the option automatic is selected, any detections are shown in the Scanner report.

When the scan is complete, its results (statistics), alerts and error messages are displayed in a new dialog box.

Note
Rootkits have the ability to hide processes and objects, such as registry entries or files. However not every hidden object is necessarily proof of the existence of a rootkit. Hidden objects can also be harmless objects. If a scan detects hidden objects but does not issue a virus detection alert, you should use the report to determine which object is referred to and obtain more information about the detected object.
