Scan Criteria

Specify which files a particular scan type should scan using file attributes such as file type and extension. Also specify conditions that will trigger scanning. For example, configure Real-time Scan to scan each file after it is downloaded to the computer.

User Activity on Files

Choose activities on files that will trigger Real-time Scan. Select from the following options:

For example, if the third option is selected, a new file downloaded to the computer will be scanned and stays in its current location if no security risk is detected. The same file will be scanned when a user opens the file and, if the user modified the file, before the modifications are saved.

Scan Settings

Select one or more of the following options:

CPU Usage

OfficeScan can pause after scanning one file and before scanning the next file. This setting is used during Manual Scan, Scheduled Scan, and Scan Now.

Select from the following options:

If you choose Medium or Low, when scanning is launched and CPU consumption is within the threshold (50% or 20%), OfficeScan will not pause between scans, resulting in faster scanning time. OfficeScan uses more CPU resource in the process but because CPU consumption is optimal, computer performance is not drastically affected. When CPU consumption begins to exceed the threshold, OfficeScan pauses to reduce CPU usage, and stops pausing when consumption is within the threshold again.

If you choose High, OfficeScan does not check the actual CPU consumption and scans files without pausing.


Configure how often and what time Scheduled Scan will run. Select from the following options and then select the start time:
