New Users Few Questions
First, I wasn't happy with my previouse choice of security software. Earlier this week I purchased avg's internet security and had problems with getting the software to activate (wouldn't show the necessary 'my avg' link/button so I couldn't input account info despite re-install and reboots). So I purchased a copy of bitdefender's internet security. I was pleasantly supprised that there was a cd in the box; no so happy that I couldn't configure the suite prior to getting on line though. To my questions...
How do I turn off/disable auto piolet? I find it annoying.
Where are the settings for file shredder? I would like to set the number of passes and what get written.
Why are scan options greyed out? Quick and Full System scans can not be modifyed (the button is greyed out). For full system scan I would like to change the 'archive' settings. When I created my own scan I noticed that scanning for rootkits was off by default; is that the default for the pre-configured scans as well?
How do I turn off automatic updates permanently? There is a setting to disable them for 5, 15, 30 minutes, 1 hour, and until reboot. I can manually handle updates. I don't need the software using my bandwidth unexpectantly (I connect via my phone and do not have unlimited data).
Finally, for now, I noticed that the fire wall entry 'stealth mode' s options just presents a blank window with an 'ok' button. Is this normal? No settings for stealth mode? No turning on/off? Just a link to settings that opens an 'ok' dialog box?
