Quick Scan vs Critical Point Scan

Recommended Posts

The newer version has the options of "Quick Scan" and "Critical Point Scan". I have tried the "Help" button and the Help Site still has the description/explanation of the older version - It does not include the "Critical Point Scan". It has been this way for quite some time.

I know the difference in a "Complete Scan", a "Custom Scan", and the "Quick Scan". The first two are pretty self-explanatory. My question is, what is a "Critical Point Scan" and what makes it different from a "Quick Scan".

Which one should be run routinely?

Hi Qapla,

The Critical Point Scan is the fastest of the two and briefly checks the most common spots for malware. A Quick Scan is more thorough and as such takes more time. Between the two a Quick Scan would be recommended for routine scans and of course a Complete Scan as often as possible.
