Know the default scanning areas that are pre-scanned before the WFBS client is installed. This ensures that it is safe to install an antimalware or security product in the machine.
When you install the WFBS client using Remote Install, internal web page, or the Client Packager, a prescan is initiated on the target computer. This prescan uses the virus pattern file of the WFBS Server, and has the following settings:
- Boot area/boot directory
- System folder (\WINDOWS, etc.)
- Program Files folder
Scanned file extensions
Scan action order
The order is Clean > Encrypt and rename > Delete > Pass.
