You must activate the Scanning Tool before using it. Refer to Activating a Managed Scanning Tool for more information.

  • If the user account has administrator privileges, you can use Trend Micro Portable Security to scan the computer.

  • Portable Security saves the scan result logs in the Scanning Tool after scanning a device.

  • To open the Scanning Tool console on an endpoint installed with Management Program, make sure the Management Program console is closed.
