    I notice that I can either "scan" or "scan as administrator". What is the difference? Is one better than the other?

    thank you. :D

    Hello MrGump,

    Running a scan as admin will allow the ESET Smart Security scanner to access files that only the admin of the machine can access.

    Thank you,
    Richard
