Solved Virus scan failure(MSN)

Post by Lance(HAOH) on 20th February 2009, 2:13 pm

I am using Windows Vista Home Basic. Recently, I experienced a problem in Windows Live Messenger. Every time I receive a file that my friend sends me a file, after I have accepted the file and fully downloaded it, an error message in red will show up, saying: Virus scan failed! Please check this folder "File Transfer" I am still able to open the received file though. I have configured my antivirus to scan the received files already and my antivirus subscription is still valid and I also made sure that it was turned on. I am using Avast! Antivirus Home Edition. I do not think that there has anything to do with my firewall as I am using Windows Firewall and it did not inform me that it blocked any features of Windows Live Messenger. I never have had this problem before. I am in a dilemma. Could someone please help me?

I think this happens because the Avast! is not configured to scan files via MSN.

There is no solution. Avast doesn't work hand in hand with Live Messenger to scan files upon receiving it.
