Is there an option for me to do a full scan or a quick scan with Webroot?
Also the Trend had an area where you could check for recent updates. Where can I find this feature on Webroot.?
Much obliged for your assistance.

Welcome to the Webroot Community,
Please have a look at the PC User Guide.
To check for updates just right click on Webroot in the system tray and you will see check for updates.
Also have a look here https://community.webroot.com/t5/Webroot-SecureAnywhere-Antivirus/Scanning-PC-suspiciously-fast/m-p/6636#M215
Edited: Here is a good post by TripleHelix which is most recent. https://community.webroot.com/t5/Webroot-SecureAnywhere-Complete/Window-s-Firewall-Turnon-or-Off/m-p/236872#M15795
Hope this helps?
Sorry for the New-B questions I'm just getting familiar with Webroot.
No problem we are always willing to help and answer questions the best way we can. We all were newbies once.;)
Here is how my Webroot is set-up. Webroot will scan once a day or how you have it setup. If you initiate a scan Webroot will do a Full Scan which only takes minutes. And yes if you check the box below to Perform a Scheduled Quick scan instead of a Full scan this can also be done. And yes Webroot will scan Automatically! You won't even know it's running really.
Does this answer your question? Sometimes I do miss the point. LOLs.
Welcome to the Community Forums.
If I may just add here...there is no such thing as a quick scan, as one finds in more traditional AV/IS products, because...the WSA Full scan is so quick that it is most often much faster in execution than the Quick scan on those other products.
I would therefore humbly suggest that you forget about quick scan and just run a manual scan (which will be Full) and be amazed at how quickly WSA does the job. ;)
Going back to the question I had about a scan, the Trend micro scanned something like 300,000 files during a full system scan and the Webroot Scan scans about 50,000 files.
Am I missing something in deciphering your advice. I do have my Webroot set up the way yours is...just wondering about the total number of files being scanned.
Again, much obliged for your help.
Well maybe this KB Article by ? can explain how Webroot works? May I ask if you read this post?
Im impressed, Webroot scans run faster than gossip travels through a Beauty Salon.
Much obliged and the very best 2U,

Im pleased with my Webroot protection and feel comfortable asking basic question to those more experienced than I.
Can I use Webroot to scan a USB drive?
@Henry Computer and Welcome to the Webroot Community!
Yes you can by Right Clicking on the USB Drive and then Click Scan with Webroot from the Context Menu.
