  • If the scan timeout set in the SharePoint settings is exceeded while the document is being uploaded to a SharePoint server via the Explorer View, all versions of this document will be moved to the Recycle Bin. The files have to be restored from the Recycle Bin manually.
  • If the application is installed on several farm servers at once, error warnings are displayed when the anti-virus settings of the SharePoint server are updated. These warnings can be ignored.
  • When an attempt is made to upload an infected file or a file with unwanted content to a SharePoint server via the Explorer View, four copies of the file are moved to Backup.
  • When an attempt is made to download and save an infected file (by selecting Save as... in Internet Explorer) attached to a calendar event, a message appears stating that the site cannot be opened. 
  • If the action in On-access scan settings is set to Block or Disinfect, and an infected file or file with unwanted content is attached to an item in a team discussion on a SharePoint server, an attempt to save the team discussion results in creating five identical entries (with the same title, author, and last update time and date) in the team discussion. This issue has been fixed in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Service Pack 3, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Service Pack 3 updates and October 2011 Cumulative Update for SharePoint Server 2007
