You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to change full-scan options in 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 in 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 "Full Scan settings".
The first option you will see is "Security level".
You can adjust the security level by clicking and dragging the slider.
You can click and drag the slider up for maximum protection, or down for minimum protection. Keeping the slider in the middle will keep the setting at "Recommended (optimal protection, recommended for most users)".
Next, click the drop-down menu to change "Action on threat detection".
The current setting is "Select action automatically". You can also choose from any of the other existing options.
You can also click on "Edit scan scope for Full Scan".
A pop-up window will appear where you can choose what parts of the system the scan will include by checking and unchecking the checkboxes.
You can also add folders by clicking "Add".
Then, for this tutorial, let's click the arrow to the left of "This PC" to expand a drop-down menu.
Then, let's click the arrow next to "Local Disk (D:)".
Choose a folder.
Let's scroll down and choose the "Install" folder.
Then, click "Select" at the bottom of the window.
You can see that the folder has been added to the bottom of the "Quick Scan" list.
When you have finished, click the "X" in the top-right corner of the pop-up window.
You can also click "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 of the additional settings. Feel free to change these settings according to your preferences. Then, continue with your scan.
