Profile targets

You can specify what will be scanned for infiltrations. Choose objects (memory, boot sectors and UEFI, drives, files and folders or network) from the tree structure that lists all available targets on your system.


NOTE

This scan profile selector applies to On-demand scan, Hyper-V scan and OneDrive scan.

Click the gear icon in the top-left corner to access the Scan targets and Scan profile drop-down menus.

scan_target

The Scan targets drop-down menu enables you to select predefined scan targets:

By profile settings

Removable media

Selects diskettes, USB storage devices, CD/DVD.

Local drives

Selects all system hard drives.

Network drives

Selects all mapped network drives.

Shared Folders

Selects all folders on the local server that are shared.

Custom selection

Clears all selections. Ones cleared, you can make your custom selection.

To quickly navigate to a scan target (file or folder) in order to include it for scanning, enter its path into the text field below the tree structure. The path entry is case sensitive.

The Scan profile drop-down menu enables you to select predefined scan profiles:

Smart scan

Context menu scan

In-depth scan

These scan profiles use different ThreatSense engine parameters.

Scan without cleaning

If you are only interested in scanning the system without additional cleaning actions, select Scan without cleaning. This is useful when you only want to obtain an overview whether there are infected items and get details about these infections, if there are any. You can choose from three cleaning levels by clicking Setup > ThreatSense parameters > Cleaning. Information about scanning is saved to a scan log.

Ignore exclusions

When you select Ignore exclusions, it lets you perform a scan while ignoring exclusions that otherwise apply.
