How can I perform a full computer scan?

Use full computer scan when you want to be completely sure that there is no malware or riskware on your computer. This type of scan takes the longest time to complete. It combines the quick malware scan and the hard drive scan. It also checks for items that are possibly hidden by a rootkit.

  1. Open the F-Secure security product.
  2. Click Settings > Manual scanning.
    • Untick Scan only known file types
    • Tick Scan inside compressed files
  3. Click OK to save the settings.
  4. Click Tools.
  5. Select Virus scan options > Full computer scan.

Tip: If there are malware files that were not cleaned or dealt with, or if a certain legitimate files and applications are considered a potential risk, you can submit a sample to our malware team.
