Virus Scanning and Malware

Brainlab recommends protecting the system with state-of-the-art anti-virus software.

Be aware that some malware protection software (e.g., virus scanner) settings can negatively affect system performance. For example, if real-time scans are performed and each file access is monitored, then loading and saving patient data may be slow. Brainlab recommends disabling real-time scans and performing virus scans during non-clinical hours.


Contact Brainlab support for further information regarding any of these issues.
