Scan tasks in Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2017 are used to search for infected files and threats. The following scan options are available:

  • Full scan. The following objects are scanned by default: system memory, objects loaded on startup, system backup, email databases, hard drives, removable storage media, and network drives.
  • Quick Scan, which scans startup objects, system memory, and the hard drive boot sectors.
  • Selective Scan, which scans any objects of your choice.
  • External Device Scan, which scans the objects connected to your computer.

After you install Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2018, we recommend that you update antivirus databases and run a full scan.
