How Do I Configure the OneCare Daily Virus Scan? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

     

    I acquired a new notebook computer with Microsoft Vista a few days ago.   I signed up for Microsoft Live OneCare, pleased to have all these malware, backup and other issues dealt with in one program with online service.

     

    I have a scheduled a daily scan with no difficulty.

     

    Now here are my questions: how do I configure the scan?  I'd like to have my entire C-drive scanned every day, if it can be accomplished unobtrusively.   

     

    Or, if I cannot configure the scheduled daily scan, how do I find out what files/folders it is scanning?

     

    Thanks,

  • The daily scan looks at the common areas for infection and typically completes within a few minutes. A full scan happens during a scheduled Tune-up and can take quite a bit longer to scan all local drives except for locations and files you exclude. You can't configure the quick daily scan.
