What are the scanning levels for F-PROT Antivirus?

You can control how thoroughly F-PROT Antivirus will scan objects on your computer and the level of heuristics that will be used. F-PROT Antivirus has three different scan levels available.

When setting up the level of scanning, please make sure that you set F-PROT Antivirus to scan inside subfolders, archives and compressed files, and data streams as well.

Below are scanning levels of F-PROT Antivirus with their respective description.

Scan Levels Description
Thorough scan
  • Heuristics and neural network detection of new viruses are used.
  • Slight probability of false positive where the scanner incorrectly classifies a file as a virus. The incorrect detection occurs either by heuristics or by a dated virus signature in a database.
  • It performs extensive scanning on files including archives.
  • Slow scanning speed.
  • Recommended if you have the reason to believe that your computer is infected with malware.
  • Normal scan (default)
  • All normal heuristics are used and therefore detection of new viruses is high.
  • Least probability of false positive where the scanner incorrectly classifies a file as a virus. The incorrect detection occurs either by heuristics or by a dated virus signature in a database.
  • It performs standard scanning on files including archives.
  • Fast scanning speed.
  • Recommended.
  • Quick scan
  • Minimum heuristics are used and therefore detection of new viruses is less.
  • Almost none probability of false positive where the scanner incorrectly classifies a file as a virus. The incorrect detection occurs either by heuristics or by a dated virus signature in a database.
  • It performs a very fast scan on files including archives.
  • Very fast scanning speed.
