1)scan for frequently unwanted programs .

Scans for PUP's and various small non Malware related programs that may have been installed, often these are legit programs that have been installed via another programs download.

2)only scan recently modified files .

This scans files that have recently been modified due to either malware or overwritten due to updates. Using this function will only scan those files not the entire system.

And What is rescue scan ?!

Rescue scan is used when you have a heavily infected system whereby a large number of changes have been made to the system causing issues almost everywhere from browsers not opening to the correct page(s) set or if other programs are struggling to open for no reason whatsoever (usually malware related). It will set everything back to it's default setting depending which options you have chosen to correct.
