The article refers to Kaspersky Security Cloud — Family and Kaspersky Security Cloud — Personal.

During scan, Kaspersky Security Cloud searches for infected files and malicious software. There are different types of scan depending on the depth and the area of the scan:

  • Full scan of the computer. 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 hard drive boot sectors.
  • Selective Scan, which scans any objects of your choice.
  • External Device Scan, which scans the devices connected to your computer.

After you install Kaspersky Security Cloud, update antivirus databases and run a full scan.
