Run a virus scan on your Samsung PC

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

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.
