If your PC is on but you are not currently using it, configure Kaspersky Free to perform anti-virus database updates and scans while you are away. This way you will avoid putting additional load on your system while you are using your PC.

When you return to your PC, the scan will be paused automatically. The application remembers where the scan task was stopped and resumes it from that stage. However, the anti-virus databases will start updating once again.

If the computer is battery-powered, Idle Scan will not be performed even if the computer is idle.

To enable or disable Idle Scan:

  1. In the main window of Kaspersky Free, click The settings icon in the lower-left corner.
