Selecting scan mode

The scan mode is the condition which triggers File Anti-Virus into activity. The default setting for Kaspersky Internet Security is smart mode, which determines if the object is subject to scanning on the basis of the actions performed in respect of it. For example, when working with a Microsoft Office document, Kaspersky Internet Security scans the file when it is first opened and last closed. Intermediate operations that overwrite the file do not cause it to be scanned.

You can change the object scan mode. The scan mode should be selected depending on the files you work with most of the time.

To change the object scan mode:

  1. Open the application settings window.
  2. In the left part of the window, in the Protection Center section, select the File Anti-Virus component.
  3. Click the Settings button in the Security level section in the right part of the window.
  4. In the window that opens on the Additional tab, in the Scan mode section, select the required mode.
