Let’s begin by getting familiar with the Main tab and its features.


Main tab (referenced in the yellow box):

Scanning for malware can be performed from the Main tab. Spyware Clear has three scanning modes:

Start Fast Scan (A) - The Spyware Clear default scan mode is “Fast Scan”. This mode scans only the most critical areas of the computer for threats including the system registry, system INI files, processes running in memory, browser cookies (Internet Explorer and Firefox only), browser add-ons (Internet Explorer only), Windows Startup and critical system folders.

Choose a different scan (B) - Other scan modes are accessed by clicking on the “Choose a different scan” button. This enables you to select either:

  • Full Scan - Spyware Clear “Full Scan” scans all areas of your computer for threats covered by the "Fast Scan”, plus each individual file and folder on your hard drive.

  • Custom Scan - Spyware Clear “Custom Scan” allows you to select which part of your system you want to scan in detail. If you select this type of scan, you will identify specifically which files and folders you’d like to scan. You can custom select those files and folders using checkboxes, click the “OK” button to confirm.
