High quality, yet affordable cPanel Linux hosting!

cPanel Virus Scanner Interface

The Virus Scanner interface in your cPanel control panel lets you scan your ccount's services against malicious software and the system prompts you to perform the appropriate action in case the ClamAV® Virus Scanner identifies a potential security threat.

Accessing the Virus Scanner interface

Login to your cPanel control panel using your web browser. Go to 'http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel/' (without the quotation marks). So if your domain name is 'example.com' you should go to 'http://www.example.com/cpanel/' to login to your control panel. The Virus Scanner interface is in the "Advanced" tab, simply click on the name or the icon to enter.
