Anti-virus Question

Recommended Posts

so....... it takes an hour or so to fetch definitions, but i noticed, at scan, it doesn't scan your HD for any nor is there a way to do it manually.

 

does it just watch out for them real-time, or am i missing something?

PC Matic should be doing a manual virus scan when you run the program. If it is not, open PC Matic and click on Options>Scan Options and check that the Type of Malware Scan is set to either Quick or Full. If it is set to Skip, it will not scan.

there's only an option for "quick or full" for Malware scan.

nothing for a virus scan.

 

i just reread what you said.

so does PC Matic bunch Malware in with viruses?

thing is, i don't ever recall seeing any mention of a scan on the results screen. actually, i do. but only that so-and-so malware was removed. again, no mention ever of viruses.
