Kaspersky Total Security regularly scans your device for malware and infected files. You can run scans of different duration and scope:

  • Full Scan, which scans the entire computer. This takes considerable time.
  • Quick Scan, which scans startup objects, system memory, and hard drive boot sectors. This scan does not take much time.
  • Selective Scan, which scans a selected file or folder.
  • External Devices Scan, which scans removable drives connected to your computer.
  • Vulnerability Scan, Which scans the operating system and installed applications for vulnerabilities that can be used by malware.

After you install Kaspersky Total Security, we recommend that you run a full scan of your computer.
