Run a virus scan on your Samsung PC

Windows defender scanning for virus on Galaxy Book Pro 360

Anti-virus software is an important part of protecting your PC. And while there are plenty of third-party security programs, your Window 10 or Windows 11 PC comes with its own built-in protection. Keep up with virus scans to keep your PC trouble-free.

Use Windows Security

If you suspect your PC is infected with viruses, go ahead and scan your PC.

Search for and click Windows Security in the search field. Then, click Virus & threat protection. For a quick virus scan, click Quick scan.

From the Virus & threat protection home page, you can check for updates, manage protection settings, and adjust ransomware protection.
