Web Scanner

Web Scanner checks and evaluates your HTTP communication. In case of trying to view or download an infected file, it will display an error screen with basic information about the infected file in your Internet browser as shown on the image below.

When downloading files, Web Scanner downloads the file and scans it for viruses before passing it to the target application (most likely your browser). This might take a long time in case of using slow connection or downloading a large file. Thus if you want to get information about download progress you can click the Internet Scanner tray icon which appears if downloading lasts longer than a specified interval.

In case of using an encrypted connection (HTTPS), scanning for malicious codes is not technically possible.
