Manual Scan

Manual Scan is an on-demand scan and starts immediately after you launch it from the Trend Micro Security console. Manual Scan checks for security risks and also eradicates old infections to minimize reinfection. The scanning duration depends on the computer's hardware resources and the number of files to scan. During a Manual Scan, Trend Micro Security performs a specific action against detected security risks. The action is configured by the Trend Micro Security server's administrator.

To run a Manual Scan, click the Trend Micro Security icon on your computer's menu bar, select Open Trend Micro Security, and click Scans.

Choose from the following scan options:

Quick Scan: Scans areas of the computer typically targeted by security risks. The Trend Micro Security pattern files contain information on the computer areas to scan.

Custom Scan: Scans the files or folders of your choice. Run custom scan on files or folders that you suspect to be infected.

Full Scan: Scans all files, except encrypted and password-protected files.

Note: You can stop or pause scanning while it is in progress.
