How to Configure SMART Scan to Automatically Remove Malicious Code

If you purchased a Premium or Enterprise SiteLock package, you have the ability to run a scheduled "SMART Scan" which can automatically remove malicious code from files on your site.  If you have received warnings in your SiteLock dashboard regarding vulnerabilities in your site files, you can run a SMART Scan to remove/repair the vulnerabilities.
