Applications installed on your computer may have vulnerabilities that can be exploited by malware. Scanning your computer will help find these vulnerabilities and prevent infection of your computer.

To start a vulnerability scan:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. In the lower part of the main window, click the More Tools button.

    The Tools window opens.

  3. Go to the Manage applications section.
  4. Click the Vulnerability Scan link to open the Vulnerability Scan window.
  5. In the Vulnerability Scan window, click the Start scan button.

Kaspersky Internet Security starts scanning your computer for vulnerabilities.

Starting with Kaspersky Internet Security 2021, the operating system vulnerability scan feature is no longer included with the application. If you want to scan for operating system vulnerabilities, you can go back to the previous version of the application.
