About Machine Groups

Shavlik Protect uses machine groups to keep track of the machines that are included in a particular scan. Even the local machine My Machine is considered a machine group. Among the predefined machine groups are:


My Machine

This group includes only the local machine.


My Domain

Includes all of the machines that are a part of the domain to which the scanning computer is joined.

My Test Machines

A group of machines that represent a 'smaller' view of your actual network environment. A machine of each type that is typically scanned should be added to this group and used for testing purposes.

Entire Network

Includes all machines currently viewable in the discoverable network.
