How to run a scan task in Kaspersky Small Office Security 7

Latest update: March 02, 2023 ID: 15097

Kaspersky Small Office Security regularly scans your device for malware and infected files. You can run different types of scans, which vary depending on their duration and scope.

  • Full Scan: The entire computer is scanned. This takes considerable time.
  • Quick Scan: Startup objects, system memory, and hard drive boot sectors are scanned. This scan does not take much time.
  • Selective Scan: A selected file or folder is scanned.
  • External Devices Scan: Any removable drives connected to your computer are scanned.
  • Vulnerability Scan: Scans the operating system and applications for vulnerabilities that could be exploited by malware.

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