Event ID 1000 — Microsoft Antimalware Engine Scan
Applies To: Windows Server 2008
A scan is used to invoke the scanning engine and look for spyware and other potentially unwanted software on your computer. Windows Defender can run a quick scan, a full system scan, or a customized scan on a computer:
- Quick scan - checks only the places on your computer's hard disk that spyware or other potentially unwanted software are most likely to infect.
- Full scan - checks all of the files on your hard disk and all currently running programs.
- Customized scan - checks only the drives, files, and folders that you specify.
