Hi, @52daffodill ,

The search for rootkits cannot be started manually from the program interface. It starts up automatically. In the settings, it can only be enabled or disabled in the performance section.


You can start searching for rootkits manually via the command prompt:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Internet Security 21.1\avp.exe" start scan_qscan

I just can’t find the rootkit scan in the scanning options.

Any suggestions, please?

Hi @52daffodill,

Once enabled (as per Friend response) the rootkit scan runs automatically once a day and after a PC restart. Also it runs as a part of Full Scan/Quick Scan, so if you have executed a Full Scan, there is no need to run rootkit scan additionally.

This workaround does work.  However, is there any way to access the results of doing this manual scan?  The scan window just disappears and I want to know the outcome of the scan!


Thank you.


You can find the scan result in the Report .

If you want to know the result in details (the scan result of every scaned file). you should set notification for scan events.
