On Friday I wrote about a free antivirus program that is powered by ClamAV called Immunet. It's great because it is free for corporate use and provides on-access real time protection from malware. There is a problem that I had with it though, and that was in creating a scheduled scan.
When trying to create a scheduled scan using a domain user's credentials I kept getting an error saying:
Error creating scheduled scan. An unknown error has occurred.
Not sure why it doesn't like domain credentials, but I was able to work around this issue by creating a local administrator account called av and use those credentials to schedule the scan. After that you can just use that local account, or you can go into Windows Task Scheduler and change the credentials used to SYSTEM or perhaps a domain account.
