where to scan ???


I just installed f-prot, and I have no idea which files and which directories to scan.

Apparently, besides going after virii, f-prot can also find rootkits and whatnot. But I have no idea where to look for those.

Suggestions?

I'm assuming you mean "the works".

The -R option doesn't exist for f-prot (at least, not according to the man page).

Are you saying I should scan every file and folder?
