CompuClever Antivirus Plus Help

Running a System Scan

The System Scan task scans the entire computer for all types of malware threatening its security, such as viruses, spyware, adware, rootkits and others.

[Note] Note

Because System Scan performs a thorough scan of the entire system, the scan may take a while. Therefore, it is recommended to run this task when you are not using your computer.

Before running a System Scan, the following are recommended:

  • Make sure CompuClever Antivirus Plus is up-to-date with its malware signatures. Scanning your computer using an outdated signature database may prevent CompuClever Antivirus Plus from detecting new malware found since the last update. For more information, please refer to “Keeping CompuClever Antivirus Plus up-to-date”.

  • Shut down all open programs.

If you want to scan specific locations on your computer or to configure the scanning options, configure and run a custom scan. For more information, please refer to “Configuring a custom scan”.

To run a System Scan, follow these steps:

  1. Open the CompuClever Antivirus Plus window.

  2. Access the Protection panel.

  3. Under the Antivirus module, select System Scan.

  4. Follow the Antivirus Scan wizard to complete the scan. CompuClever Antivirus Plus will automatically take the recommended actions on detected files. If there remain unresolved threats, you will be prompted to choose the actions to be taken on them.
