Client notifications for deferred scan

If the deferred scanning is incomplete after reaching the maximum timeout, access to the file is allowed.

These client notifications appear to the user on the client system for successful on-access scanning or scan timeouts:

  • Deferred scan completed for file <C:\Test\file name>. File is safe to access.
  • Deferred scan is in progress for file <C:\Test\file name>. (A thread in svchost.exe process took 45 seconds for scanning. Hence, access denied.)
  • Deferred scan is timed out for file <C:\Test\file name>. Hence, access allowed.
  • Deferred scan failed for file <C:\Test\file name> due to some internal error. Hence, access denied.
  • Deferred scan failed for file <C:\Test\file name>. Hence, access denied.
  • Access Denied: Deferred scan is in progress for file <C:\Test\file name>.
  • Deferred scan completed for file <C:\Test\file name>. File is not accessible.
  • Deferred scan completed for file <C:\Test\file name>. File is deleted.
Note: The client notifications do not appear for on-demand scan.
