Scan tasks in Kaspersky Anti-Virus are used to search for infected files and threats. You can run different types of scans, which vary depending on their duration and scope.

  • Full Scan. The entire computer is scanned. Requires sufficient time.
  • Quick Scan. Scans startup objects, system memory, and the hard drive boot sectors. Does not require much time.
  • Selective Scan. A scan of a specified file or folder.
  • External Devices Scan. Scans the removable objects connected to your computer.

After you install Kaspersky Anti-Virus, we recommend that you run a full scan of your computer.
