Computer Scan

The Scanner component performs anti-virus scan of the computer. Scanner checks boot sectors, memories, and both separate files and objects enclosed within complex structures (archives, containers, or email attachments). Dr.Web uses all detection methods during computer scan.

On detection of a malicious object, Scanner only informs you about the threat. Report on all infected or suspicious objects is displayed in the table where you can select a necessary action. You can apply default actions to all detected threats or select the necessary action to certain objects.

The default settings are optimal for most cases. However, if necessary, you can modify the suggested actions in the Scanner settings window. Please note that you can specify a custom action for each detected threat after the scan is completed, but common reaction for a particular threat type should be configured before the scanning process starts.
