The PC Health Advisor scan is a step-by-step procedure that scans the registry, active and startup processes, and a privacy scan. After the scan is complete the results are displayed.
|Registry Issues||Scans for invalid registry entries.|
|Malware Processes||Scans for any malicious processes that are running on your system.|
|Active Processes||Scans for any unwanted processes that are running on your system.|
|Privacy Protection||Scans for items that are considered private or confidential so that you can easily remove them to save disk space.|
|Startup Processes||Scans for startup items that are unnecessary to improve the time it takes to start your computer.|
Before you begin a scan, we recommend reviewing the items that are selected to be scanned. You can make adjustments so as to customize the items you want to scan, specifically the Registry and Privacy settings.
