Keep real-time scanning turned on to remove harmful files from your computer before they can harm it.
We recommend that you keep Virus protection turned on all the time. You can also scan files manually and set up scheduled scans if you want to make sure that there are no harmful files on your computer or to scan files that you have excluded from the real-time scan.
To make sure that real-time scanning is on:
- Open F-Secure SAFE from the Windows Start menu.
- On the main view, select Viruses and Threats.
- On the Viruses and Threats view, select Settings.
- Select Edit settings.
Note: You need administrative rights to change the settings.
- Turn on Virus Protection.
