Active Scan vs.Full Scan
Maybe a silly question but I can't find it anywhere...
Can someone please tell me the differences between Active Scan and Full Scan?
Looked in Help, on the net, on the forum, can't find it : /
Active scan - Scans commonActive scan - Scans common loadpoints ( like startup files, few registry entries,C:\Windows, Temp and User Profile ) and memory. Its is a scan which normally takes 2-5 minutes
Scans the memory and other common infection locations on the computer for viruses and security risks.
Scans the entire computer for viruses and security risks, such as adware and spyware. Use this scan to look in the boot sector, in the programs that are loaded into memory, and in all files and folders. A password may be required to scan network drives.
Scan only the files and directories that you specify.
