Shutdown after scan - If you select this check box, the computer will shut down after scanning is finished

Scan profile - You can select the profile you want from the drop-down menu:

In-depth Scan - This is a pre-defined profile on the client, it is configured to be the most thorough scan profile and checks the whole system but also requires the most time and resources.

Smart scan - Smart scan allows you to quickly launch a computer scan and clean infected files with no need for user intervention. The advantage of Smart scan is it is easy to operate and does not require detailed scanning configuration. Smart scan checks all files on local drives and automatically cleans or deletes detected infiltrations. The cleaning level is automatically set to the default value.

Scan From Context Menu - Scans a client using a pre-defined scan profile, you can customize the scan targets.

Custom Profile - Custom scan lets you specify scanning parameters such as scan targets and scanning methods. The advantage of a Custom scan is the ability to configure the parameters in detail. Configurations can be saved to user-defined scan profiles, which make it easy to repeat the scan using the same parameters. A profile must be created prior to running the task with the custom profile option. Once you select a custom profile from the drop-down menu, type the exact name of the profile into the Custom profile field.

Cleaning

By default, Scan with cleaning is selected. This means that when infected objects are found, they are cleaned automatically. If this is not possible, they will be quarantined.

Scan Targets

This option is also selected by default. Using this setting, all targets specified in the scan profile are scanned. If you deselect this option, you need to manually specify scan targets in the Add Target field. Type the scan target into the text field and click Add. The target will be displayed in the Scan targets field below.
