This is a unified reference page for all Scans/Security Options.

The Scans/Security Tab allows you to execute scans with several popular programs.  CCleaner Cleans out temporary system files, which saves space and makes subsequent scans faster.  RegSeeker scans the registry for errors and fixes them.  Vipre Rescue is a one time scanner made by Sunbelt Software.  It is a very effective freeware scanner version of their commercial anti-virus product.  Updating the Hosts file makes your computer not see specific websites known to contain malware.
