 === Be aware that there are several Antivirus programs that that now Identify Fscan as a virus threat, and in some instances will partially disable the Pervasive Service on a network. Some of these antivirus programs include Sophos Antivirus and WatchGuard Antivirus. So as a rule, we should delete the application after using it. It does not have to be running to be recognized as a threat, It just has to exist in a folder, and when the folder is accessed, it will cause the antivirus to report that a threat has been detected. Once this happens the antivirus will take appropriate action to protect the network. We have seen on one occasion, that even if the Fscan.exe file is on a workstation,​ the antivirus caused the server to block access to one of the pervasive services, effectively preventing everyone from being able to open System Five. === === Be aware that there are several Antivirus programs that that now Identify Fscan as a virus threat, and in some instances will partially disable the Pervasive Service on a network.
