Quick and Full Scan Behavior RRS feed

  • Question

  • We use envirioment variables for exclusions in Documents and Settings\%ALLUSERPROFILE% and %USERPROFILE% and
    %USERNAME% in our Full and Quick scans.

    On a PC with multiple profiles, when a scan takes place do the variables exclude all profiles for %ALLUSERPROFILE%?

    On a PC with multiple profiles, when a scan takes place do the variables exclude a specific profile for %USERPROFILE% if logged on?

    In short what is the scan behavior using variables logged on and while logged off?

  • %userprofile% will translate to Default User when no user is logged on the system as far as I can remember. %ALLUSERPROFILE% will always return c:\users\all users or on xp and the like, c:\documents and settings\all users.
