The automatic protections in Panda Antivirus Pro 2010 are background scans that allow you to keep your computer free from malicious code at all times.
Panda Antivirus Pro 2010 allows you to carry out different types of specific scans:
Full scans. These thoroughly scan the selected item in your computer (hard disks, email, etc.). To do this, simply click the item you want to scan in the Scan menu.
Scheduled scans. These scans automatically start at a certain pre-established time or with a certain frequency, depending on the characteristics specified when they were created.
You can also carry out an immediate scan of any item accessible from the Windows Explorer (files, directories, disk drives,…). To do this:
Select what you want to scan.
Click the secondary (normally right) mouse button.
Click Scan with Panda Antivirus Pro 2010.
