As its name implies, Antivirus Doctor is an application that promises to protect your computer against all types of threats, including viruses, spyware, trojans and other malicious programs.
Ease of use is one of the main advantages of the application and the interface makes no exception. It comprises two panes, one for selecting the drive to scan and the other for viewing a list of the detected viruses.
Only custom scan is available, enabling you to choose the locations you suspect to be infected, whether it is local or network drives, CD-ROMs, USB devices or other storage units, as well as single files or directories. Archive scanning is supported.
When all the desired target locations are selected, just press the 'Start Scan' button and let the application handle the rest. Antivirus Doctor uses ClamAV engine version 0.95.2 in order to find potentially dangerous files in your computer.
The scanning can be stopped at any time and once the process is finished, you can view the total duration and a list of the detected malicious files, which can be deleted with a button's push.
The application does not remember previous target selections and sometimes an error might occur during scan, which makes the process impossible to finish. Another drawback is that it does not include a quarantine section, where the infected files can be moved in order to avoid virus spread.
Although it is easy to use, Antivirus Doctor might not be able to detect and remove the latest powerful viruses and infections. Since it does not provide real-time protection and lacks other important features that other similar security software include, it is not advisable to use it as a permanent antivirus solution.
