When is full Malware scan worth doing?

Recommended Posts

Under what circumstances should I run a full malware scan? The consistent advice here in the forums is to use quick scans because they're faster and catch virtually all malicious items. What tiny fraction of malicious items is missed by a quick scan?

 

Also, I delighted with PC Matic. Can't wait for it to be released on the Mac, too.

Hey @Alecto and :wp:

Thanks for your interest in our software!  Generally speaking, a quick scan is all that's needed and is much quicker to complete than the full scan as it only looks in the places malware most commonly hides. That being said, the reason you would want to run a full scan is when PC Matic is detects something but it is not being removed or the detected item comes back repeatedly. In a situation as such,  you want to run PC Matic in Safe mode with networking. 

 

Hope this helps and if you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to our Customer Support team at https://www.pcmatic.com/support/

 

Tx :)
