Scanning computer for viruses and vulnerabilities is one of the most important task in ensuring the computer's security. The virus scan detects the spreading of malicious code, which has not been detected by the malware protection for some reasons.

Kaspersky Lab's specialists distinguish the virus scan tasks:

  • Quick Scan. Virus scan of critical areas: folders containing operating system files and libraries.
  • Full Scan. The following objects are scanned by default:
    • System memory.
    • Programs loaded on startup.
    • System backup.
    • Email databases.
    • Hard drives.
    • Removable storage media and network drives.
  • Virus Scan allows scanning any object on your computer for viruses presence (file, folder, disk or removable device).
