Startup scan

By default, the automatic startup file check will be performed on system startup and during detection engine updates. This scan is dependent on the Scheduler configuration and tasks.

The startup scan options are part of a System startup file check scheduler task. To modify its settings, navigate to Tools > Scheduler, click Automatic startup file check and then Edit. In the last step, the Automatic startup file check window will appear. For detailed instructions about Scheduler task creation and management, see Creating new tasks.
