Two (2) options on how to access your Avast Business Security

Option #1: From you Task Bar you can see the color orange Avast icon then double click it.

If Avast icon is hidden click the caret sign (^) pointing upward arrow

Option #2: Press your Windows key on your keyboard

Type “avast” then click “Avast Business Security”

In this example, I will use option #1 for demo.

  1. From your taskbar, double click the Avast icon
  2. Click “Protection”
  3. Click “Virus Scan”






4.  From Virus Scans Menu under “Other Scan”

  • Select “Full Virus Scan”


 5. Wait full scan to complete 100%



If found any malware (virus, worms, Trojan, rootkits, spyware, ransomware etc.) or infected files take screen shot and attached to the ticket for further checking and analysis.
