On-demand scanning methods and how they are defined

The on-demand scanner uses these two methods of scanning:

In memory process scanning

This method examines all active processes prior to running the on-demand scan task. A detected potentially unwanted process is highlighted and the process is stopped. This means that a single pass with the on-demand scanner removes all instances of a potentially unwanted program.

Incremental or resumable scanning

This method allows the scanner to start where it last left off. For a scan where you scheduled a start and stop time or a time limit, the scan stops when the time limit is reached. On the next scheduled scan, the on-demand scan continues from the point in the file and folder structure where the previous scan stopped.
