Malware Scan

Malware scan is vital to computer security. Regularly run malware scans to rule out the possibility of spreading malware that is undetected by protection components due to a low security level setting or for other reasons.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security does not scan files whose contents are located in OneDrive cloud storage, and creates log entries stating that these files have not been scanned.

Full Scan

A thorough scan of the entire computer. Kaspersky Endpoint Security scans the following objects:

Kaspersky experts recommend that you do not change the scan scope of the Full Scan task.

To conserve computer resources, it is recommended to use a background scan task instead of a full scan task. This will not affect the security level of the computer.

Critical Areas Scan

By default, Kaspersky Endpoint Security scans the kernel memory, running processes, and disk boot sectors.

Kaspersky experts recommend that you do not change the scan scope of the Critical Areas Scan task.

Custom Scan

Kaspersky Endpoint Security scans the objects that are selected by the user. You can scan any object from the following list:

Background scan

Background scan is a scan mode of Kaspersky Endpoint Security that does not display notifications for the user. Background scan requires less computer resources than other types of scans (such as a full scan). In this mode, Kaspersky Endpoint Security scans startup objects, the boot sector, system memory, and the system partition.
