  • Updated: 10 Feb 2011

By default, Sophos Anti-Virus for NetWare does not disinfect macro viruses, but it can be configured to do so.

What to do

Sophos Anti-Virus for NetWare can be configured to disinfect documents infected with certain macro viruses automatically. Auto-disinfection can be enabled by selecting 'Disinfect' from the 'Macro viruses' option in the 'Immediate' and/or 'Scheduled' menus.

Note: If disinfection fails, your chosen removal mode will be applied to the infected file. Unsuccessful disinfection could result in deletion, depending on your settings.

If you need more information or guidance, then please contact technical support.
