Run a custom scan

Note You cannot manually run scheduled custom scans. Scheduled scans are displayed in the Available scans list with a clock icon.
  1. On the Home page, under Anti-virus and HIPS, click Scans.
    For information about the Home page, see About the Home page.
  2. In the Available scans list, select the scan you want to run, and then click Start.
    A progress dialog box is displayed and the Activity summary panel appears in the Sophos Endpoint Security and Control window.
Note If the scan detects components of a threat in memory, and you have chosen not to automatically clean up viruses/spyware for the scan, 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 Managing quarantine items.
