With Next-Gen Antivirus you can perform various scans in order to keep your computer clean of malicious files. Keep in mind that only one scan can be run at a time.
Custom Scan - allows the scan of any file by using the right-click context menu then selecting Scan with Next-Gen Antivirus which will open a new window with the result
Quick Scan – scans critical OS locations and the most usual target folders which are known for virus activity:
- C:\Program Files\Common Files
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files
Active Processes Scan – scans all the processes currently running on the machine
Full Scan – scans all the local files on the computer
Hard Drive Scan – scans all files on the hard drive while ignoring the files on all external media types
Local Drive Scan – the profile will scan all local disks including the hard drives, optical drives, and external storage
Removable Drive Scan – scans for the files that are on flash, optical or external drives
System Scan – the profile will scan the system directory
Network Drive Scan – will scan the network mapped network drives (does not work with network locations). The HEIMDAL Agent detects infected files but not actions will be performed (Quarantine/Delete) because a file located on a network cannot be moved to the local quarantine folder.
Our antivirus offers Real-Time Scanning which can be enabled from the Settings - Next-Gen Antivirus tab. This feature will scan all actions performed on any file, such as read, write or execute so that malicious activities can be detected immediately.
