Kaspersky Security Scan offers you a free-of-charge way to scan your PC in order to detect viruses, Trojan programs, worms and other malicious objects. Because it accesses the same databases that are used for Kaspersky’s commercial products,
Kaspersky Security Scan can detect all known malware (except complex rootkits). Kaspersky Security Scan uses the latest Kaspersky Lab technologies – plus real-time information from Kaspersky Lab’s servers in the ‘cloud’ – to ensure it can scan your PC for the latest viruses and emerging threats.
Three layers of scanning help to identify different types of security problems. First, Kaspersky Security Scan checks whether there’s up-to-date antivirus protection and an active firewall on your PC. Then it uses traditional analysis and ‘cloud technologies’ to scan for malicious programs and threats. Finally, it checks your PC for vulnerabilities and non-malware security issues.
After your scan, you’ll get a report on all of the threats and vulnerabilities that Kaspersky Security Scan has found on your PC. You’ll also get suggestions on how Kaspersky Lab security products can help to remedy any security problems and protect your PC.
Downloading and installing Kaspersky Security Scan usually only takes a few minutes – and there’s no need to worry about conflicts with your firewall or a third-party antivirus product that’s already installed on your PC. Even if you already run antivirus software, Kaspersky Security Scan lets you double-check important security issues.
With a simple and intuitive interface, Kaspersky Security Scan is easy to use. After you’ve installed it, Kaspersky Security Scan will receive daily updates to its antivirus and vulnerabilities databases. Furthermore, whenever we release an upgrade, you will be prompted to install the latest version. Upgrades are easy and fast to install.
