On-demand computer scan

If you suspect that your computer is infected (it behaves abnormally), run a Smart scan to examine your computer for infiltrations. For maximum protection, run computer scans regularly as part of routine security measures, not just when an infection is suspected. Regular scanning can detect infiltrations that were not detected by the real-time scanner when they were saved to the disk. This can happen if the real-time scanner was disabled at the time of infection, or if modules are not up-to-date.


ESET recommends that you run an on-demand computer scan at least once a month. You can configure scanning as a scheduled task from Tools > Scheduler.

You can also drag and drop selected files and folders from your desktop or Finder window to the ESET Endpoint Security for macOS main screen, Dock icon, Menu Bar icon (eset_icon at the top of the screen) or the application icon (located in the /Applications folder).
