To define a custom scan scope and run the scan:

  1. Run Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool.
  2. Click Change settings.
  3. Select check boxes next to objects you want to scan (see figure below):
    • System volumes — list of mount points recommended for scanning (for example, Downloads, Documents, Temporary files, etc).
    • All volumes — all mount points except service and network mount points. Service mount points include Pseudo File Systems such as sysfs, procfs and others.
