Scan progress

The scan progress window shows the current status of the scan and information about the number of files found that contain malicious code.



It is normal that some files, such as password protected files or files exclusively being used by the system (typically pagefile.sys and certain log files), cannot be scanned.

Scan progress – The progress bar shows the status of already-scanned objects compared to objects still waiting be scanned. The scan progress status is derived from the total number of objects included in scanning.

Target – The name of the currently scanned object and its location.

Threats found – Shows the total number of threats found during a scan.

Pause – Pauses a scan.

Resume – This option is visible when scan progress is paused. Click Resume to continue scanning.

Stop – Terminates the scan.

Scroll scan log – If enabled, the scan log will scroll down automatically as new entries are added so that the most recent entries are visible.
