Important! When submitting files using FTP, make sure to first open a Support ticket!

  To prepare your submission:

Step 1. Make a new folder.

Step 2. Name the new folder after your Support ticket Reference number. If you do not have a reference number you will need to create one here.

Step 3. Put the output files you wish to submit into this new folder. These can be files from the SafeMode scan (scanner_auto.txt and scanner_auto.zip, which can be found on the root of your Local Disk C:\) and / or any other files you wish to submit.

Step 4. Zip this folder by right-clicking on it and selecting Send To > Compressed (zipped) folder to create foldername.zip. Now you can submit the file via FTP from Windows Explorer or from the Command Prompt by following the appropriate instructions below.
