How to run a virus scan in Kaspersky Security Cloud 20

Latest update: July 11, 2023 ID: 15091

Kaspersky Security Cloud regularly scans your device for malware and infected files. You can run scans of different duration and scope:

  • Full Scan, which scans the entire computer. This takes considerable time.
  • Quick Scan, which scans startup objects, system memory, and hard drive boot sectors. This scan does not take much time.
  • Selective Scan, which scans a selected file or folder.
  • External Devices Scan, which scans removable drives connected to your computer.

After you install Kaspersky Security Cloud, we recommend that you run a full scan of your computer.
