Kaspersky Endpoint Security 10 for Windows

Changing the scan mode

Scan mode means the condition under which File Anti-Virus starts to scan files. By default, Kaspersky Endpoint Security scans files in smart mode. In this file scan mode, File Anti-Virus decides whether or not to scan files after analyzing operations that are performed with the file by the user, by an application on behalf of the user (under the account that was used to log in or a different user account), or by the operating system. For example, when working with a Microsoft Office Word document, Kaspersky Endpoint Security scans the file when it is first opened and last closed. Intermediate operations that overwrite the file do not cause it to be scanned.

To change the file scan mode:

  1. Open the application settings window.
  2. In the left part of the window, in the Anti-Virus protection section, select the File Anti-Virus subsection.

    In the right part of the window, the settings of the File Anti-Virus component are displayed.

  3. In the Security level section, click the Settings button.

    The File Anti-Virus window opens.

  4. In the File Anti-Virus window, select the Additional tab.
  5. In the Scan mode section, select the required mode:
    • Smart mode.
    • On access and modification.
    • On access.
    • On execution.
  6. Click OK.
  7. To save changes, click the Save button.
