Scan for Rootkits

Scan for files implementing advanced OS hooks used by malware to protect themselves from being shutdown, killed, or deleted. A rootkit is a collection of programs that enable administrator-level access to a computer or computer network. Typically a rootkit is installed on a computer after first obtaining user-level access by exploiting a known vulnerability or cracking a password.

Scan for Adware

Scan for adware. Adware is a form of software that downloads or displays unwanted ads when a user is online.

Scan for Riskware

Scan for riskware. Riskware refers to legitimate programs which, when installed and executed, presents a possible but not definite risk to the computer.

Enable Advanced Heuristics

Enable AV scan with heuristics signature. Advanced heuristics is a sequence of heuristics to detect complex malware.

Scan Removable Media on Insertion

Scan Email

Scan emails for threats with SMTP and POP3 protocols.
