Here are some useful Tips and Tricks to help you get started:


Scheduling a Scan:

  • Open your PC Tools product.
  • Click on the “Settings” button then select “Scheduled Tasks”
  • Click on the “Add” button and follow the prompts that are presented to you.


Which Scan to Run?

Running a full scan will scan all folders and drives on your system whereas running an Intelli-scan is a faster scan that will scan known locations of Malware or threats.

We recommend you set your full scan weekly and an intelli-scan daily. [Tip: Set it for a time you know the PC will be on but not in use]


Automatically remove all detected items after a scan.

We recommend you apply this setting to make it quicker and easier for you. Once the scan is complete all detected items will be removed automatically.


Here’s how:

Click on “start scan” and check the option “Auto Fix”. That’s it! The software does the rest – it will remember this setting and apply to all scans.


If you want to check what was detected, simply look in your activity history under “Settings” then “History”.


You can turn the alert sound On/Off.

Here’s how:

  • Open your PC Tools product.
  • Click on “Settings” and then select “Anti-Malware Settings”
  • Click on “Scan Settings”
  • Click on the box next to “Play sounds” to turn the sound on / off
