Webroot:This solution addresses Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection

Scan settings give advanced control over scanning performance.


Scan Settings
Enable Realtime Master Boot Record (MBR) Scanning Protects the endpoint against master boot record (MBR) infections. An MBR infection can modify core areas of the system so that they load before the operating system and can infect the computer. We recommend that you keep this option selected. It adds only a small amount of time to the scan.
Enable Enhanced Rootkit Detection Checks for rootkits and other malicious software hidden on disk or in protected areas. Spyware developers often use rootkits to avoid detection and removal. We recommend that you keep this option selected. It adds only a small amount of time to the scan.
Enable "right-click" scanning in Windows Explorer Enables an option for scanning the currently selected file or folder in the Windows Explorer right-click menu. This option is helpful if the user downloads a file and wants to scan it quickly.
Update the currently scanned folder immediately as scanned Displays a full list of files as SecureAnywhere scans each one. If you want to increase scan performance slightly, deselect this option so that file names only update once per second on the panel. SecureAnywhere will still scan all files, just not take the time to show each one on the screen.
Favor low memory usage over fast scanning Reduces RAM usage in the background by using less memory during scans, but scans will also run a bit slower. Deselect this option to run faster scans and use more memory.
Favor low CPU usage over fast scanning Reduces CPU usage during scans, but scans will also run a bit slower. Deselect this option to run faster scans.
Save non-executable file details to scan logs Saves all file data to the scan log, resulting in a much larger log file. Leave this option deselected to save only executable file details to the log.
Show the "Authenticating Files" popup when a new file is scanned on-execution Opens a small dialog whenever the user runs a program for the first time. Leave this option deselected if you do not want users to see this dialog.
Scan archived files Scans compressed files in zip, rar, cab, and 7-zip archives.
Automatically reboot during cleanup without prompting Restarts the computer after running a clean-up, which is the process of removing all traces of a malware file.
Never reboot during malware cleanup Prevents the endpoint from restarting during cleanup, which is the process of removing all traces of a malware file.
Automatically remove threats found during background scans Removes threats during scans that run in the endpoint's background and sends them to quarantine.
Automatically remove threats found on the learning scan Removes threats during the first scan on the endpoint and sends them to quarantine.
Enable Enhanced Support Allows logs to be sent to Webroot customer support.
Show Infected Scan Results Shows scan results. If not enabled, the endpoint does not show scan results even if malware is detected.
