SmartCOP anti-virus provides some additional tools that can be used to submit viruses and
information pertaining to viruses to the headquarters of the SmartCOP. Some of these tools are briefly discussed here:
Handcuff Suspected Viruses: Handcuff features in tools module is specifically
designed to enable the user to scan detect and send the suspected files, e-mails and symptoms along
with comments of the user to SmartCOP Anti-Virus Support Station for analysis and possible solution
free of cost. If the user suspects virus infection, a system image and suspected files can also be
attached with a message and send to us. So, it is not just software, it is a ďComplete Anti-Virus
Solution with Total SupportĒ.
Rescue Disks: SmartCOP provides the option to create rescue disks at the time
of installation or as and when the user wants. It creates a self-booting and auto scanning floppy
which is very helpful in emergencies when the system stops booting. The user has the option to copy
an image of the hard disks on the rescuer diskette.
Whenever a computer virus makes an attempt to invade the computer, the anti-virus software stops
it. But with advancement in technology, viruses are becoming smarter than yesterdays. On each virus
attacks, some entries are created in the registry. A virus with vaccine can easily be removed from
the registry but the situation could become worse if an unknown virus, for which you have not taken
the update, enter in the computerís registry. The creators of SmartCOP identify this problem and
develop the System Integrity Monitor tool. Whenever an unknown virus makes entry in the registry,
the System Integrity Monitor stops the infection and protects the registry even in the absence of
update for unknown virus. It checks the monitored registry entries, or files, every time the
system boots. In case there is any change in these entries, it notifies or automatically recovers
the original data.
The settings provide a way to exclude a folder/file from being scanned. For example, if you have
enabled the heuristic scanning of the scan engine, when you write your own macros, the scanner might
suspect the legitimacy of your macros. To prevent this you can put your documents containing the
macros in one folder and exclude that folder or select the file individually from being scanned
heuristically. The exclusion is also applicable to all the sub-folders of the excluded folder.
SmartCOP, by default, creates four entries in the exclusion list. These entries are created for
a more efficient system operation.
You can click on any Folder/Files in the list and then click on Remove to delete the entry after
confirmation. Clicking on Properties will bring up the exclusion options window.
You can add a new folder/file in the exclusion list by clicking the Add button. In the folder
list select the folder to exclude. Once you have selected the folder/file, the exclusion options
window will open up. You can define the types of exclusion you want to set in the selected folder.
If no options are checked, it is equivalent to not adding the folder/file to the exclusion list.
The exclusion options are divided into two parts- Offline Scan Options and Real-time Scan
Options. Following is the description of each of these choices:
Exclude from Scan: If checked will not scan files/folders in the selected folders.
Do not perform Heuristic scan for Macro viruses: Will not scan for macros in MS-Office documents. Known viruses will still be scanned for.
Do not perform Heuristic VBS/JS/Wscript inspection: Will not scan for suspicious scripts. Known viruses will still be scanned for.
Do not scan ZIP files: Will not scan files inside ZIP archives.
Do not scan files on Create/Modify/Download: Will not scan files being modified or new files being created.
Do not scan files on Read/Execute: Will not scan files on Read/Execute.
Do not block suspicious VBS/JS/Wscript files: Will not block access to suspicious script files.
Do not prevent files from being modified: Will not write-protect executable files.
The above options are inclusive of the options set in the Scan Engine and Smart Trap page.
For example, if you have disabled the scanning of files on Read/Execute in the Smart Trap page,
then no matter what you select in the exclusions window, no file will be scanned on Read/Execute.
The main module settings are global and take precedence.
