Where do I find options for virus checking downloads - I get a message telling me to change options with each download
When I download software or files the Downloads window opens, the file downloads and is virus scanned and then a message appears telling me:
"Download Statusbar: Anti-Virus Scan failed to start, check configuration"
I had an options facility when I first set up Firefox where there were several options available - I believe the virus check facility was the last tab.
I think I had an option box which allowed me to tick a check box to scan on download but I can no longer find this option box. Please can you advise the route to it?
Many thanks in anticipation.
