During a scan, Webroot SecureAnywhere searches all areas of your computer where potential threats can hide, including drives, files, the Windows registry, and system memory. To detect threats, it looks for any items that match our threat definitions, items listed in our online community database, or items that exhibit suspicious behavior.
You can check the scan statistics by clicking PC Security. The Scan tab shows the most recent scan results, total scans, threats removed, and active threats detected.
Scans run automatically every day, at about the same time you installed the software. For example, if you installed the software at 8 p.m., Webroot SecureAnywhere always launches a scan around 8 p.m. It will not disrupt your work, nor will it launch while you are gaming or watching a movie. If any threats are removed during scans, Webroot SecureAnywhere will launch a follow-up scan to make sure your system is clean.
You can also view scan results online. See Viewing
