Scan computers now

You can scan a computer or computers immediately, without waiting for the next scheduled scan.

If you use role-based administration, you must have the Remediation - updating and scanning right to scan computers. For more information, see Managing roles and sub-estates.

Note: Only Windows, Linux and UNIX computers can perform immediate full system scans originated from the console.

To scan computers immediately:

  1. Select the computers in the computer list or a group in the Groups pane. Right-click and select Full system scan.
    Alternatively, on the Actions menu, select Full system scan.
  2. In the Full system scan dialog box, review the details of the computers to be scanned and click OK to start the scan.
Note: If the scan detects components of a threat in memory, the scan stops and an alert is sent to Enterprise Console. This is because further scanning could enable the threat to spread. You must clean up the threat before running the scan again.
