Scanning the computer for viruses and vulnerabilities is one of the most important tasks in ensuring computer's security. It is necessary to scan your computer for viruses on a regular basis in order to rule out the possibility of spreading malicious programs that have not been discovered by the other protection components. Vulnerability scan performs the diagnostics of operating system and detects software features that can be used by intruders to spread malicious objects and obtain access to personal information.

Kaspersky Small Office Security 3 for Personal Computer includes a special Idle Scan option. It is designed to allow running resource-intensive tasks (for example, scheduled scan) while the computer is idle. When the Idle Scan option is activated, all resource-intensive tasks will be performed if the computer is locked or if the screensaver is shown for 5 minutes.

In case your computer is battery-powered, scan will not be performed when your computer is idle.
