Windows 7: MS Security Essentials - Question

MS Security Essentials - Question

Hello,

I have Win.7 Ultimate - 64 bit dual boot with XP 32 bit with 3 Hard

Drives. When I do a scheduled scan of my computer at say 300am will MS

Security scan all three drives?

I do not see anywhere in their program to change where it

will automatically scan, just when.

I do know I can manually scan a drive, file, etc.

Thanks

Bob

Hello Bob, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In MSE settings, you can change the "Scan type" to "Full scan" to have all hard drives scanned from the scheduled scan.

Hope this helps,

Hi,

Thank you. That's the setting I've already changed it too.

I did think "Full vrs" Quick" was the type of scan rather then

the locations to be scanned.

Thanks again.

There's also this option to have removable drives scanned.

I didn't find a setting for updating. Did I miss something? And I have Windows Update set to update...
