Run a full scan

A full scan checks all drives and folders on your PC for threats including viruses, spyware, tracking cookies, rootkits, bots, Trojans, and worms.

A full scan takes more time than a quick scan, because it is a comprehensive scan. Run a full scan when you want to check your entire PC for threats.
