Setting up my anti-malware settings

Cloud AV – Scan Settings Tab

To configure the Cloud AV Scan Settings in CatchPulse

  1. Launch CatchPulse > Scan Settings > Select Cloud AV on the side menu.

  2. By default Cloud AV Full System Scan, Cloud AV On Demand Scanning and Cloud AV Real-time Scanning are all enabled.

  3. You can turn off Cloud AV Full System Scan and Cloud AV On Demand Scanning. However, do note that doing so will also disable the Cloud AV diagnosis from the Anti-malware prompts and On-Demand Scanner.

    Disabling Cloud AV is one way to stop initial full system scan if there is a need to temporarily disable Cloud AV after a fresh installation of CatchPulse on your system.

Note: Cloud AV Real time scanning and Cloud AV Full (Automatic) System Scan is disabled by default on the Lite version of CatchPulse.

However, your machine will be scanned immediately for any newly installed or created executable files and when an untrusted application is being executed with real-time protection.
