If your computer is showing symptoms of malware infection, for example it is slower, often freezes, we recommend that you do the following:

  1. In the main program window, click Computer scan.
  2. Click Smart scan to begin scanning your system.
  3. After the scan has finished, review the log with the number of scanned, infected and cleaned files.
  4. If you want to only scan a certain part of your disk click Custom scan and select targets to be scanned for viruses.
