256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows registry
This article describes how to configure a manual scan job to continue scanning in Microsoft Antigen 9.0 for Exchange even after the scan job experiences a problem. To do this, you can configure the "ManualScanContinueOnFailed" registry entry.
This registry entry may benefit you in a scenario in which the manual scan job experiences a problem while it scans a file or a folder structure. If this registry entry is not set, the manual scan job exits when it experiences a problem with a file or when it experiences a problem parsing a folder structure.
To configure a manual scan job to continue scanning if it experiences a problem, follow these steps.
Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
