I have NST running and installed but viruses are still getting through!

I have the following on the command line option:

cmd /Q /D /C "D:\Program Files\FSI\F-Prot\fpcmd.exe" /silent

Yet someone else I know running it has the following:

%SCANNER% /silent %IN% /report=%ERR%

Which is correct or are they both correct?

Why am I still getting Viruses coming through?

Cheers

The cmd wrapper is only needed for the F-PROT for DOS version. If you use the Windows version, the wrapper is not required. Though it is harmless, it adds some unnecessary overhead, so the second command line is prefered, but it might not work with older versions of NoSpamToday!.

How do you know those are viruses? Do you run a second scanner? If this is an occasional instance, I wouldn't worry. If it is more frequent, I would expect an update problem. Make sure the virus database (signature files) is updated regularly, and the scanner itself.

i know they are viruses as they are coming through an email address that is filtered through NST and they are gettign picked up at my desktop by Norton, but these shouldnt even get to my desktop is NST was working properly!

I have had 7 slip through today....

So if i change my settigns to %SCANNER% /silent %IN% /report=%ERR%

that would be better but shouldnt make any difference?

the signature files are updated every hour by f-prot as well as the scanner.

I wonder what would happen if you used f-prot on the desktop as well. It seems that different vendors sometimes have different opinions on what message contains a virus and what message does not.
