How to run a virus scan with Microsoft Forefront
To run a manual virus scan on your computer, go to your “Start” menu (you may need to click on ‘All Programs’), find the listing for Microsoft Forefront Endpoint Protection, and click on it to start the program.
When the program starts, you should see four tabs across the top. Click on the “Home” tab if it is not already selected.
On the right hand side of the screen, you should see “Scan Options.” Select Quick scan, full scan (takes longer), or Custom Scan (to scan a specific drive or folder), and then click on the “Scan now” button to begin the scan.
