  • Quick Scan
    Fastest. Scans only Windows folders, Startup folders, and folders linked to startup items, which are common places for hackers to place viruses. (Programs in these folders can run automatically without permission, which creates the most risk.)

  • Full Scan
    Very thorough. Scans all files and folders, and scans for rootkits. Skips Archive files.

  • Full Scan with Archive files
    Very thorough. Scans all files and folders, and scans for rootkits. Scans contents of zip files. Can take many hours to perform.
