Webroot SecureAnywhere allows you to select several types of scans:
Quick. A surface scan of files loaded in memory. This scan runs quickly, but may miss some types of inactive malware that launch after a system reboot. Note: If the Quick scan misses an infection, the main interface remains red until you run a Full or Deep scan.
Full. A scan of all hard drives. This type of scan is helpful if you frequently switch between system partitions or you have several programs that have never been scanned before.
Deep. An analytical scan that searches for all types of threats, including rootkits and inactive malware. This is the default scan that runs from the main panel or system tray.
Custom. A customized scan of files and folders (see the instructions below).
To run a custom scan:
Open the main interface.
Click PC Security.
From the Scan tab, click Custom
In the Customized Scan dialog, select the radio button for the type of scan you want to perform. If you want to select specific files or drives, choose Custom. Then you can either drag/drop files into this dialog or click the Add File/Folder button to select the directories and files you want.
Click the Scan button to launch the scan.
