  2. Choose your scan type: Quick Scan, Full Scan, or Custom Scan (see options below)
  3. From the Scan page, click the green Start Scan button.
  4. After the scan is completed you can review the items detected, and see if there are any areas you do not want to fix.
  5. Once you are ready, click Clean to begin fixing the detected issues.

Custom scan options:

When selecting a custom scan you can scroll through the list of folders and add or remove locations from being scanned.
