Ashampoo Anti-Malware 1.21
Antivirus and anti-malware application suite that features a real-time protection module, task scheduler, and additional security tools
Once installed, the program creates an icon in the system tray, where you can disable the guard from automatically running at system startup, real-time protection, and the on-access scanner, along with the monitoring of autostart entries, WinSOCK LSPs and Internet Explorer BHOs installation, and changes to the Windows Hosts file.
The primary window is divided into multiple panels dedicated to an overview on the entire system system areas, user-defined areas, rookits protection, signature and program updates, scanner, quarantine, logs, scheduler, additional security tools, and options.
You can perform a full-system scan (including all hard drives), or verify only system areas, loaded applications, the registry database, browser cookies, individual folders or hard drives, or all hard drives. The custom scanner may include loaded applications, the registry database, and web browser cookies.
It is possible to create a white list, send infected items to the quarantine or remove them, view log details, schedule multiple tasks (one-time, recurring), use only the anti-spyware or anti-virus engine, set a custom list of file formats, use proxies, and change the interface language.
Additional tools of Ashampoo Anti-Malware contain a file wiper, Hosts file checker, startup tuner, rootkit detector, web browser cleaner, ADS scanner, process manager, and LSP viewer.
The application suite uses high CPU and RAM to work properly. We have noticed that other applications decreased in reaction speed while Ashampoo Anti-Malware was running in our tests. Unfortunately, the utility is pretty high-demanding when it comes to system resources. Plus, it takes a long time to finish a scan job. Other than that, Ashampoo Anti-Malware is a full-featured antivirus and anti-malware solution for all users.
