You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to change "Quick Scan" options on Kaspersky Total Security.
The first thing you need to do is open Kaspersky Total Security.
I have an icon for the program saved on my desktop.
When the program opens, click the gear icon on the bottom left corner of the window.
Clicking the gear icon will allow you to access the "Settings" menu.
When the "Settings" menu opens, click "Scan" on the left hand side of the window.
Then, on the right side of the window, click "Advanced Settings".
Clicking on "Advanced Settings" will reveal a drop down menu.
In this menu, click on "Quick Scan settings".
The first option you will see is "Security level".
You can adjust the security level by clicking and dragging the slider. If you click and drag the slider up, you will change the setting to "High (maximum protection in dangerous environments)".
Clicking and dragging the slider all the way down will change the "Security level" setting to "Low (minimum protection and highest computer performance)".
Keeping the slider in the middle will keep the setting "Recommended (optimal protection, recommended for most users)".
Next, click on the drop down menu to change "Action on threat detection".
The current setting is "Select action automatically". The other options in this menu are "Notify", "Disinfect", "Disinfect, if not possible - delete", and "Delete".
You can also click on "Edit scan scope for Quick Scan".
A pop up window will appear where you can add any components of the system or folders by clicking "Add".
Then, for this tutorial I will click the arrow to the left of "This PC" to expand a drop down menu.
Then, I will click the arrow next to "Local Disk (D:)".
Choose a folder.
For this tutorial, I will scroll down and choose the folder "Install". Then, click "Select" at the bottom of the window.
You can see that the folder has been added to the Quick Scan list.
When you are finished in this screen, click the "X" in the top right corner of this pop up window.
You can also click on "Additional Settings".
In the window that appears, you can choose various settings to optimize the scan.
You may need to scroll down through the window to view all additional settings. Feel free to change these settings according to your preference.
