I think you didn't understand me. If you want complete statistics you have
it on. If you want virus scanning always, you have it on. If you don't need
that for blocked files, you have it off. I'm sure that there are many
vendors who want to have it all on. Fine. I see the value in that approach.
However, I'm also sure that many would like to balance their ressource usage
and just use what is necessary.

Back to your original question I hooked on: I see high-scoring spam marked
as containing a virus as well, so there must be something different in your
setup if it doesn't work for you.
