  3. Select check boxes under Computer to select specific locations you want to scan for malware.
  4. Click Start Scan and follow the Antivirus Scan wizard to complete the scan. (Here, the time taken by the scan varies depending on the number of locations you want to scan.)
  5. To Stop or Pause the scan:
    • You can stop scanning anytime you want by clicking ‘Stop Scan’. You will go directly to the last step of the wizard.
    • To temporarily pause the scanning process, just click ‘Pause Scan’. You will have to click ‘Resume Scan’ to restart the scan.
  6. At the end of the scan, the scan result window will appear.

  • Delete: You can delete the threat found by clicking on Delete.
  • Quarantine: You can move the identified threat to a Quarantine folder by clicking on Quarantine.
  • Mark as Safe: An identified threat marked as Mark as Safe is considered safe hereafter and is not detected as a threat in all future scans.
