Scan is responsible for detecting malicious objects. You have different options:
  • Full scan. The following objects are scanned by default: system memory, objects loaded on startup, system backup, email databases, hard drives, removable storage media, and network drives.
  • Quick Scan, which impacts startup objects, system memory, and the hard drive boot sectors.
  • Selective Scan, which scans any objects of your choice.
  • External Device Scan, which scans the objects connected to your computer.
After you install Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2017, we recommend that you update antivirus databases and run a full scan.
