scan a single file

I created a new scan, pointing to 1 individual file only, however the scan appears to randomly be scanning every file on my c drive?

Hi bbxrider, welcome to the forums.

It’s probably the AV’s Scan memory on start that is making you believe this. This option makes the AV scan every file that is in memory (ie. all currently running processes) first and they probably are all over the place… making it seem that the AV was scanning every file on your C drive. Un-check that option (manual scans?) and re-try.

Did you try Right Clicking on the file and selecting “COMODO Antivirus”? That will scan only the selected file/folder. Plus, it’s easier than creating a separate scan profile just to scan a selected file.
