Within the BullGuard application, you can make BullGuard scan your computer for threats in two ways. In the main application screen, click the drop-down button from the Antivirus box and then click on an Antivirus Profile of your choice. Within the Antivirus Settings section, go to Advanced mode section, click on Manage Profiles, select one of the profiles, click on the drop-down button and choose to Execute.
Quick scan: this scan profile will check the locations on your PC that are most likely to be targeted by viruses. It will check for rootkits and scan the registry, all the running processes and the temporary files stored on your computer.
Full scan: this is a complete profile that will scan all files on all hard drives. The time it takes to do this depends on your computer’s performance, the number of storage devices you use, file types and how much data you have stored.
Custom scans: if you have created profiles for specific scan tasks, they will appear in the drop-down and in the Manage Profiles section, for easy execution.
The scans time will depend on the selected profile, on the general computer performance and the number of files to be scanned.
