To perform a scan for various threats and other infected files in your computer, choose the “Scan” section at the top of the program’s interface and then select the “Quick Scan”, “Malware Scan” or “Custom Scan”.

After a scan is completed, click “Quarantine selected” to send these files to the safe place for further actions, “Delete selected” to remove detected files or “New scan” to perform a new scan.
