Cleaning settings determine how the scanner cleans infected files. There are 3 levels of cleaning:

No cleaning – Infected files are not cleaned automatically. The program displays a warning window and allows you to choose an action.

Standard cleaning – The program attempts to automatically clean or delete an infected file. If it is not possible to select the correct action automatically, the program offers a choice of follow-up actions. The choice of follow-up actions is also displayed if a predefined action cannot be completed.

Strict cleaning – The program cleans or deletes all infected files (including archives). The only exceptions are system files. If it is not possible to clean a file, you receive a notification and are asked to select the type of action to take.


Standard cleaning mode - archive cleaning

In the default Standard cleaning mode, entire archive files are deleted only if all files in the archive are infected. If an archive contains legitimate files as well as infected files, the archive is not deleted. If an infected archive file is detected in Strict cleaning mode, the entire archive is deleted even if clean files are present.
