Scanning the computer for viruses and vulnerabilities is one of the most important tasks in ensuring security of the computery. The virus scan detects the spreading of malicious code, which has not been detected by the malware protection for some reasons. Vulnerability scan detects software vulnerabilities that can be used by intruders to spread malicious objects and obtain access to personal information. 

Kaspersky Lab specialists distinguish the virus scan:

  • Full scan. Full scan is a thorough scan of the entire system. The following objects are scanned by default: system memory, programs loaded at startup, system backup, email databases, hard drives, removable storage media and network drives.
  • Quick scan. Quick scan implies scanning of objects loaded at the operating system startup, as well as scanning of the system memory and boot sectors.
  • Custom scan. Custom scan implies scanning of any object selected by the user.
  • Removable drives scan.
