DETAILED STEPS
You can perform a manual scan with AT&T AntiVirus Plus. Update your software before scanning to make sure you’re protected against the latest threats.

To perform a manual scan:
  1. Do a right-click on the McAfee icon in your system tray. The icon appears as an M, a shield, or both.
  2. Select Scan.
  3. Choose the type of scan you want to run:
    • Full scan: Scan your entire computer for known threats.
    • Quick scan: Scan only the most susceptible parts of your computer for known threats.
    • Let me choose: Use a Windows Explorer-style window to manually select the drives, folders, and other locations you want to scan.
  4. Select Start.
When the scan finishes, a window appears with details of the scan. To see the scan results of any suspicious files, select View Results. If View Results doesn’t display, then the computer is virus-free.
