Well, actually it appears that it doesn't work when you specify just a
directory (even with the -z option) without any wildcard matching the
directories _in_ that directory - so, for example, if I run

        antivir -z /

it doesn't do anything, but

        antivir -z /*

gives the expected result. I haven't asked H+B support if this is a "works
as expected" thing or an error.

(I'm running it on local file systems only - I'd try to avoid running it
across a network for a full scan to avoid the network load, but as always -
your mileage my vary.)
