SecureAnywhere scans for viruses extremely quickly, much faster than any other antivirus.

By default, scans run automatically every day, at about the same time you installed SecureAnywhere. For example, if you installed SecureAnywhere at 8pm, it always launches a scan around 8pm. Depending on the selections in your schedule, it won't disrupt your work, nor will it launch while you play games or watch a movie.

The default scan is referred to as a deep scan, which checks your entire computer for rootkits, trojans and other threats. During the scan, SecureAnywhere searches all areas where potential threats can hide, including drives, files, and system memory. It looks for items that match our threat definitions, match descriptions in our community database, or exhibit suspicious behavior. If SecureAnywhere detects a threat, it moves the item to quarantine where it is rendered inoperable. In quarantine, it can no longer harm your system or steal personal data.

If SecureAnywhere detects a potential threat, it displays an alert that prompts you to make a decision on whether you want to allow or block the item. If you aren't sure, we recommend that you block the item.
