Default Re: Antivirus Experts needed!

Antiviruses only scan accessed/modified files. Unless something or someone is accessing that very specific file on USB drive, nothing will detect it.
If you doubleclick it, it will be scanned. If there is an autorun located on USB drive and is pointing to that EXE (or whatever it is), it will be scanned.
Scanning everything because it's there is waste of resources. Thats why no one does it.
So don't worry about it.
