Does anti-virus software scan your computer even when the computer is off?
I have my anti-virus scheduled for a daily scan, same time every day. Will it scan my computer even when the computer is off?
No, your computer must be on for it to complete the scan Nothing at all will happen when the PC is not powered on.
You can of course just set off a scan when you next go on and let it run through in the background.
