Hey,

I don't know if this is the appropriate forum but I found this option in my Antivirus (G DATA) and was wondering what it's for?

I couldn't find much on it but I think it may be some type of Cloud Analysis of some sort? It's located under Real-Time Protection > Virus Monitor. Do you guys think this would add value to my PC or cause slowdowns etc.?

I don't know if there is a link... but i think it's make a sound when a virus is detected ? Accoustically means that in a dictionary : the definition of acoustically : "pertaining to the sense or organs of hearing, to sound, or to thescience of sound."
Or maybe someone who know more G Data can help ?

Good: I do not use Gdata, but I think it is an alert with sound when it detects a malaware.
But there are colleagues here in MT that if they use Gdata and can tell you more about this topic.

Hm, okay thanks for info folks. I'll wait to see if anyone who uses G DATA on MT Forums has any more info on this?

Real time protection> Virus Monito
The bottom "□" is the activation of "Notification by alarm sound at detection" (2017 version).
It is a setting frequently adopted by other security software, but it may be upset by an unknown warning sound.:eek::eek::eek:
Even if I use it everyday, there seems to be little influence on deceleration:whistle:
