    2. The Scan Priority is Normal by default. You can change the priority if required.

      1. From the Select the items to scan options, select the files, file types (executable files, packed files, archive files), and the mailboxes that you want to scan.
      2. In Archive Scan Level, set the scan level. You can set the level for scanning in an archive file. The default scan level is 2. Increasing the default scan level may affect the scanning speed.
      3. To remove an infected file from your system follow these steps in the Select action tab:
        • If an infected file is found in an archived folder on your system, select whether you want to delete, quarantine, or skip the file.
        • If an infected file is found in your active folder/drives on you system, select whether you want to repair, delete, or skip the file.
