Its a mystery to me - Which of these 6 scan options should I select before hitting Start? -
I'm PC-illiterate, does it show?

1 -PERFORM SMART SYSTEM SCAN
2 -PERFORM FULL SYSTEM SCAN
3 -USE CUSTOM SCAN OPTS
4 -SCAN VOLUME FOR ADS
5 -SEARCH FOR NEGLIGIBLE RISK ENTRIES
6 -SEARCH FOR LOW RISK THREATS

PERFORM FULL SYSTEM SCAN

takes about 15 minutes - should pick up everything.

As Golfer says,Full system scan for the best results.

Okay thanks, yes a 2 - full scan makes sense, I can live with 15 mins..
Shall I select 5 and 6 at the same time so all three scan together?

5 and 6.They normally dont find anything that has to be deleted.I usually have them unticked,And maybe run them once a month.I am sure someone may tell you different,But its the way I ran mine.

Okay, one last thing - Scans always find something called "MRU LIST (5 objects)"
and I always quarantine it, but its always back after every scan, is that normal and shall I just go on quarantining it each time?

This is your internet history. I never quarantine this list as I like to have the drop down list for quick revisists.
