Spyware scans and tuneups settings RRS feed

  • Question


    My computer has 2 hard drives.  I would like to change OneCare settings to limit tuneups and scans to only one drive as necessary to save time.  How can I accomplish this?

  • You can exclude the second drive from malware scans - open One Care >Change settings>Viruses and Spyware>Exclusions>Add Folder, browse to the second drive and add the drive letter. This setting will only exclude the second drive from malware scans and all other tune up functions will run as before but the malware scan is the most time consuming part of tune up so this should reduce tune up time considerably.
