Hi,

Looks like you have Avira AntiVir installed. You can use that to scan Smile

Hi ronlynn,

Like Crush said, you have Avira installed.

However, if you cannot find where you are supposed to click in order to start the scan, if you go to your control panel, you will see that Avira Desktop actually has it's own icon in there. If you click that it will open up Avira, and there you can start your scans.
