It's not a statistic I've never come across in 25yrs.

No doubt somebody, somewhere has it but I've not found it yet :) Likely folks that may have it would be VirusBulletin but you have to pay to get access to most of their good stuff and I haven't had access to an account there for a few years now.

Interesting question Jack, I'll move this to the Virus Help section where it may attact the attention of more people who might know.

I have a question regarding doing quick scans versus thorough scans with various security software.

The basic definition of a quick scan is that they ONLY scan the most likely places an infected (maleware) file is apt to be (as determined by the software’s developer), while a thorough scan usually does all the PC’s files.

The quick scan is considerably faster in the time it takes to finish (especially on large hard drives that have a good many files).

Has anyone ever seen any real world statistics type information of a thorough scan detecting an infected file that a quick scan would miss?

Thank you.
