Selecting Scan Targets for On-Demand Scans


To configure scan targets for on-demand scans:

  1. Click in the ANTIVIRUS & FIREWALL panel of the ZoneAlarm software client.
  2. Click Settings in the Antivirus/Anti-Spyware section.
  3. Click Advanced Settings.
    The Antivirus/Anti-spyware Settings window opens.
  4. From the navigation tree, select Scan Targets.
  5. Select individual drives, folders, files, and components for scanning.
  6. To scan boot sectors and system memory (on by default) - other critical components of your computer, select:
    • Scan boot sectors for all local drives.
    • Scan system memory.
  7. Click OK.


These settings apply to on-demand scans in Full Scan mode only. A Quick Scan scans for viruses in memory, boot sectors, startup folders and folders linked to the startup items. You can not change the Scan Targets for the Quick Scan mode. You also can not stop a Full Scan from scanning some mandatory sensitive areas like C:\Windows\System32 or C:\Windows\SysWOW64.
