    Red face Automatic Download Scan

    Hi, I'm new to Spybot and the Forum ( Hello to all)and would like to ask a Question, my question is , is it possible to set up Spybot Search and Destroy to do a Automatic scan of a downloaded file, I have my Norton software set up to scan a download when finished downloading.
    I do a manual scan with Spybot before opening a file after the Norton has finished scanning.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    there is no way to have spybot automatically scan a file when downloaded. However, if you create a folder that you have all your downloads in, you can add that folder to be scanned at the end of the spybot scan. You will find that in settings-directories. Right click the white area and then add the folder that you put all your downloads in.
