It has several advantages over other anti-viruses and the advantages of using Threat Prevention Module are as follows:

  • Scans the computer for different types of malware.
  • The scanning process can be of two types:
  1. Running a quick scan or a full scan: This occurs when our computer scans the entire device for any suspicious files or folders. In case any such file is found, it will immediately report to the user regarding its existence. The users can then look into the file and remove it from their machine or they can even ignore the warning if needed.
  2. Scanning a particular file or folder: In this process, the user can right-click on a particular file or folder and scan it if he/she feels that there is something in that particular file that can cause harm to their computer. This is a comparatively quicker process than the full scan process as it does not need to scan the device all over again and concentrates on a particular file only.
  • Manage quarantine items: Quarantine files are those files that are suspected to contain the virus but are not deleted. Instead, they are placed in a separate folder and scanned repeatedly to remove any trace of the virus. Quarantine items can be scanned documents, images, and texts. Such files are managed by Threat Prevention Module.
  • Allows Zero Impact Scanning: The Zero Impact scanning is another useful feature of the Threat Prevention Module. It is the process in which the scanning process continues but is not visible to the user. As a result, the user does not have to bother about it and can continue with their work on the device without even having the knowledge of the ongoing scanning procedure.
