How to disable security scan when downloading a file

    Question

  • When downloading files in IE 10 we get quite long security scan times after file is downloaded.

    Is this an IE feature i can disable or exclude file extension from being scanned?

  • Hi,

    Based on my research,there's no option to "disable" the security scan.

    It is designed by default.

    I hope you understand that.
