Default FlashFXP Suggestion/Question

I extreamly enjoy FlashFXP and I was reading the fact that 2001 was the year with the most Virii infections. Well doing lots of FTP and such d/l there is a high possibility of d/l infected software. Does or if not is it possible for FlashFXP to beable to intigrate your existing virii scanner to ease minds?

Scanning for virii is really not the job of a client, but rather the server that makes the files available.. Still, most scanners already have the ability to scan all files that goes in/out of the machine, and that should pretty much cover it.

Thanks, I know like McAfee has that D/L scanner, but too bad not all scanners have that. (I don't think) I use myself Panda AV and it works ok plus I run Nortons too (out of my own paranoia) because of its email (In & Out) scanning. I'd run McAfee because of getting the D/L scanning but the newest one is to buggy and it is not compatible with my ZAPro. (Another paranoid device)

Well, on-access scanning is the only way to go, any solution that has to start an external scanner (like you propose) has serious short-comings, first and foremost because there's several milliseconds where the file is sitting there free to do whatever it pleases. If memory serves, ZAPro chokes on McAfee due to ZAPros vector-protection DLL (it BSOD'd my old NT4 aswell), so if if I may offer a suggestion, get a better firewall. BlackICE offers much the same protection, albeit with a different approach, and ALOT less nagging for interaction. McAfee is able to scan everything (including email, on-access, special Outlook-attention, what have you..) but I'm quite sure others would serve just as well.
