Run a full computer scan

To scan your entire computer system, including the boot sector and system memory:

On the Home page, under Anti-virus and HIPS, click Scan my computer.

For information about the Home page, see About the Home page.

A progress dialog box is displayed and the Activity summary appears in the Sophos Endpoint Security and Control window.

Note If the scan detects components of a threat in memory, the scan stops. This is because further scanning could enable the threat to spread. You must clean up the threat before running the scan again.

If any threats or controlled applications are found, click More and refer to the Managing quarantine items section.
