The tool scans and detects two object types:
Malicious (where the malware is identified)
Suspicious (where the malware cannot be identified)

When the scan is over, the tool outputs a list of detected objects (Malicious or Suspicious) with their description.

It automatically selects an action (Cure or Delete) for [i]Malicious[/i] objects.
Leave the setting as it is.

Leave the setting as it is.

After clicking 'Next/Continue', the tool applies the selected actions.

A 'Reboot Required' prompt may appear after a disinfection. Please reboot.
