Windows Quick Start Guide
Congratulations on choosing TotalAV, after reading this article you will have an understanding of how easy it is now to keep your Windows PC protected against viruses.

If not carried out already, visit my.totalav.com/windows/login in order to download and install the TotalAV app. The download will begin immediately and should take only a few seconds on a decent internet connection. Once it is complete, depending on the browser, locate and open the downloaded installer.

 

Follow the on-screen installer wizard to complete install on your computer.

If the app isn’t visible after install, check the Windows Taskbar at the bottom of the screen for the TotalAV icon, clicking the icon will bring to focus the TotalAV app.

 ​

After the dialogue box above is displayed, click OK, Start Scan to begin the first virus scan of your computer.

Should the virus scan find any threats, a pop-up dialogue box will show in the bottom right of the screen and further details will be present in the results screen in the app post-scan. All will be handled regarding the disabling of a virus, you need not worry about the virus from that point forward – Simply follow the instructions on screen to ensure the virus is disabled by being moved to the Quarantine folder.

As an upgraded user of TotalAV, the app by default is set to run virus scans weekly. However, scans can be started manually whenever, and scheduled scans can be configured to run at different frequencies in Settings, which is accessible by clicking the cog icon in the top right corner of the app window.

The TotalAV app will run when you start up Windows, but can also be found in the Start Menu on Windows, the same as any other software installed.

The final step for virus protection is to ensure Real-time protection is enabled. On the TotalAV sidebar, click Antivirus, then in the sub-menu, click Real-Time Protection.

Ensure that the toggle is set to display Protection Enabled. This will mean that Antivirus checks are always quietly going on in the background in real-time, specifically with regards to when incoming data arrives on your computer. Each time you download or receive a file from the internet, rest assured that TotalAV will check it for viruses, and block it if the file contains a threat.

That about covers the basics of antivirus. It probably seems very simple, however, that’s the beauty of TotalAV – you as a user are now running weekly virus scans, have real-time protection enabled and can rest assured you are protected from viruses.

Regular updates will occur quietly and unobtrusively in the background for TotalAV. These ensure the app is always looking for the latest threats during real-time protection and virus scans. Rest assured, this keeps you fully protected against a vast array of viruses.
