i tried to rename one large file (250GB) with 'dos' command 'rename file' and after few seconds my computer froze because KAV loaded it into memory and then available RAM was 0 bytes!
the only solution - restart computer.
of course added to exclusion that file but nothing good happened!
should be an option into settings like "don't scan files bigger than XXX MB", isn't it?

Hello ghoul, welcome to the new forum.

Is it a single file or an archive like .zip or .rar?
Then there would be a possibility under 'Settings->Protection->File Anti-Virus->Advanced Settings->Scan of compound files Advanced settings->Size limit'.
