Check Your PC For Malware And Software Vulnerabilities With Kaspersky Security Scan

Kaspersky Security Scan is a free tool that lets you scan your PC and USB drives for any active infection, software vulnerabilities and other non-malware security problems. It can be quite useful, for example, if you suspect your PC might be infected with malware that your current antivirus program isn’t detecting, you can use this free tool from Kaspersky to check.

Kaspersky Security Scan can also identify various software vulnerabilities - one of the weak points of a PC that an intruder can make use of - and other security issues of your PC.

It uses the latest Kaspersky Lab technologies and real-time information from Kaspersky Lab’s servers in the ‘cloud’ to ensure it can scan your PC for the latest viruses and emerging threats.

Unfortunately, Kaspersky Security Scan can’t fix the problems it finds, you will need to install another program to do that. However, it will give suggestions on how Kaspersky Lab security products can help to remedy any security problems and protect your PC.

Kaspersky Security Scan can be downloaded (42MB) from source. Requires internet access to install the program.
