Selecting the scan method

During virus scan, signature analysis is always used: Kaspersky Internet Security compares the object found with the database records.

You can use the additional scan methods to increase the scan efficiency: heuristic analysis (analysis of the actions an object performs within the system) and rootkit scan (tools that can hide malicious programs in your operating system).

To specify which scan method to use:

  1. Open the application settings window.
  2. In the left part of the window, in the Scan section, select the required task (Full Scan, Critical Areas Scan or Custom Scan).
  3. In the Security level section, click the Settings button for the task selected.
  4. In the window that opens, on the Additional tab, in the Scan methods section, select the required values for the settings.
