File Anti-Virus prevents infection of the computer's file system. By default, File Anti-Virus starts together with Kaspersky Endpoint Security, continuously remains active in computer memory, and scans all files that are opened, saved, or started on the computer and on all drives that are attached to it for the presence of viruses and other threats.

On detecting a threat in a file, Kaspersky Endpoint Security performs the following:

  1. Detects the type of object detected in the file (such as a virus or trojan).
  2. Labels the file as probably infected if the scan cannot determine whether or not the file is infected. The file may contain a code sequence that is typical of viruses or other malware, or the modified code of a known virus.
  3. The application displays a notification about the malicious object detected in the file (if notifications are configured), and processes the file by taking the action specified in File Anti-Virus settings.
