Once you installed the antivirus software, now its time to check if there are any infected files in your system. We liked the simplistic UI of the software. So you can see very minimalist options on your screen. So at the first use it is recommended to do a “Full Scan” of your system. So it will scan all the files on your system. This process can take a while to scan your system.
If it finds any infected files then it automatically transfers it to Quarantine Folder of the software. From Quarantine menu you can delete or fix the files as per the need. Its essential to delete the infected files as it may cause damage to the system. Though if important files are infected then because of those files that particular software may not function properly.
So you also can see the path of the file which is infected in Quarantine menu. Ideally its good to delete the infected files if they cannot be fixed. In a Custom Scan you can only scan a particular folder or files. So it is like the customized version of the scanning process as per the requirements of the user.
Its recommended to keep the “Realtime Protection” switch to ON(green symbol will be showcased when switched ON). Your paid subscription(or if on trial version) and the days left will be mentioned at the bottom of the screen.
Bullguard Antivirus is a very simple to use Antivirus Software recommended for users who like to safeguard their devices from infected files with ease. Very much useful and does the work of removing viruses from your computer. It is also available at a very reasonable price.
