Detection :: Detection of a rootkit

If problems are detected in the Scanner rootkit scan, you will receive an alert if you have selected interactive mode or automatic mode as the action mode for virus detection with the Display Alert option (see the configuration section Scanner::Scan::Action on detection).  In interactive mode you can choose what to do with the rootkit in the dialog box . There is no selection option for handling the detected virus in automatic mode with alert. The action that was automatically executed is displayed in the message.
