To open the Threat Scanner Settings dialog box choose the instruction that coincides with your operating system below:
Windows XP, Vista, or 7 users:
Click START > PROGRAMS > EACCELERATION > STOPSIGN > THREAT SCANNER SETTINGS.
Windows 8/8.1 users:
At the Start screen type STOP (the search box will appear as you type.) When the StopSign logos appear to your left or right of your screen, click on "THREAT SCANNER SETTINGS".
Windows 10 users:
In the "Search the Web and Windows" box next to the start menu(otherwise known as Cortana), type STOP. When the StopSign logos appear in the results provided, click on "THREAT SCANNER SETTINGS".
On the Threat Scanner Settings dialog box there are three areas where you can change how the Threat Scanner functions.
Choose files to scan:
In the upper left portion of the Scanning tab you will see an area with check boxes. These check boxes allow you to choose what drives you wish to scan. If you click the "+" sign next to each drive, you can choose to scan only specific directories or to skip directories from being scanned. A checked box indicates the drive and or directory will be scanned.
In the lower right corner of the Scanning tab you can make changes to your Detection settings, letting you decide what type of infections you would like to scan for.
The left side of the General settings tab allows you to designate what actions should be performed when threats are found during a scan. These actions are based on file locations and threat types.
File locations include:
Scan speed setting
If you plan to use your computer during the scan, we recommend you change the scan to run no faster than the default (medium speed). If you do not use your computer during scans, you can set the scan to run faster.
Scan results settings
These settings let you choose how often you would like to see scan results from automatic scans. You will always be shown scan results from scans you start manually.
CUSTOM CURE Tab
Your privacy is important to us. The only information that is sent is what we need to create a custom cure for your computer. StopSign NEVER shares your information with any third party.
