How many passes depends on how you set it. It can be set for 1, 3 or 7 (Normal, Medium and Maximum)
Please see the User Guide for full details.
Open WSA, at the upper right corner click Advanced Settings.

There you go.
I posted in the antivirus sectiuon for a reason.
There is another thread with this question over the last week. It appears that for some reason some WSA-AV users are seeing that option, but they are not supposed to. It is being looked into by the Developer. I honestly do not know the actual status of that option: does it actually work or not, and if it does, how many passes is it actually using.
