 BullGuard antivirus has the capability to fight against dangerous virus and threats which might create an issue with your device's security. This security software is demanded in the market because of its flawless performance while securing your device. One can easily rely on this software program as it promises to provide excellent protection to you.

Apart from its powerful features, it provides good protection to your emails as well. Just think that if there is an email that is not safe to open as it contains a dangerous link that is created by the malware developer. If you open that email and click on that link, your privacy will get compromised and everything will become vulnerable.

If you have received an email and BullGuard isn't allowing you to open that then, there might be some dangerous link attached with it. In such a case, you should check that email and delete it if that has come with an unknown source. And in case, if you have to open that email on an urgent basis then, open it at your own risk.

To open that email, you have to disable BullGuard antivirus software on a temporary basis. To do so,

• First of all, you will need to click on “Settings” in your BullGuard Software
• On the Menu appears on left, you will see an option called “real-time antivirus”
• After that, you have to click on it and then, choose “off”
• You will be asked to choose a time period to turn it off and after that, you are ready to open that email.

In case, if you have opened that email mistakenly and you think that your privacy gets compromised then, all you need to do is to conduct a scan using BullGuard antivirus. To do so,

Conduct a Malware Scan on Windows Computer

Full Antivirus Scan

• First of all, open BullGuard Program and the Antivirus component
• Click on the down arrow and then, click on the Full Scan
• The scan is ended by following the recommendations at the end of the scan

Scan device using BullGuard Antivirus

Step 1-

To create a Custom Scan, you will need to click on the drop-down option from the Antivirus box that appears in the main window

• Now, choose Settings and click on the Advanced from the top-right of the window
• After that, click on the Manage Profiles and click on Add Profile
• Give it a relevant name and then, click on Add and you can start customizing the scan profile

Step 2-

Choose drives or folders to scan

You can choose the drives to be scanned and add specific folders to the scan profile. Click on the + option will open a browser window where you can search for the folders which you want to add to the profile. To remove a folder from the list, choose it and then, click on the – (dash) option

Scan inside Archives: It allows the Antivirus to open and scan the content of all archives from the target

Open Emails: It allows the BullGuard to open email archives and scan their content and if you are sure that your email archive is clean then, you can uncheck this option to lessen the scanning duration

Step 3-

Choose File Types

You can further customize the file types to be scanned by adding or by removing the extensions to the scan profile

You should choose to scan all files because you never know where that email malware or threat has gone. In such a case, you have to choose the scan all files option

Scan all files – This option will scan all file types that are available on the PC and it is advisable you choose this option for the periods when your OC is idle, as scanning all files can take the toll on performance specifically if you have large files (email databases or archives).

This way BullGuard deal with email threats or malware and in case, if you think that there is still some issue or you don’t want to allow BullGuard to take control of your mail account then, contact BullGuard Customer Service Number UK to get in touch with the experts for instant and reliable assistance.
