IAntimalware2::Notify method (amsi.h)

Sends to the antimalware product a notification of an arbitrary operation. The notification doesn't imply the request of an antivirus scan. Rather, IAntimalware2::Notify is designed to provide a quick and lightweight mechanism to communicate to the antimalware product that an event has taken place. In general, the antimalware product should process the notification, and return to the caller as quickly as possible.
