Baidu Antivirus 5.0.3.84333

An intuitive antivirus program that provides real-time monitoring protection against malware, spyware, and other threats, as well as USB and web browser protection
Baidu Antivirus is an antivirus application that comes packed with several tools designed to offer you protection against malware, spyware, and other threats.

The program was designed to detect and remove the potential threats that may compromise system security by providing real-time protection, as well as anti-phishing and hacker protection.

Baidu Antivirus features three scanning modes: quick, full or custom. Of course, the first one is the fastest one because it scans only some locations from your computer.

The full mode is the most comprehensive one, as it makes sure every item is scanned for possible threats. At the end of the scanning operation, you can view details about the time needed to complete the job, detected or removed threats, and the number of scanned items.

During our testing we have noticed that a full scan might take some time, especially if you have large files on the disk. On the downside, it doesn’t remain light on the system resources, so it burdens the overall performance of the computer.

There are three protection modes (fast, standard or strict), and each of them ensures that threats are blocked efficiently but with a different impact on system resources.

Baidu Antivirus features an automatic update option, and offers USB protection (normal or automatic mode), Windows Explorer integration for the “File Shredder” option, and proactive defense by providing a quick response from the Cloud storage services for blocking threats.

Furthermore, there are several protection modes which can be activated with just a few clicks, such as system and USB protection, as well as web access, browser, and download protection. It offers support for IE, Chrome, and Firefox, and you can also add a custom web browser to the list.

Additionally, you can make the program run at Windows startup, define the action on threat detection (manually or automatically deal with the items, or backup files to quarantine), as well as create exclusion lists by specifying the file extensions, URLs or applications.

The log section offers details about the scanning operations, detected threats, and update details, and you can export the information to a plain text file.

All in all, Baidu Antivirus ensures your computer is protected against malware, spyware and other threats. The user-friendly interface is definitely the ace up its sleeve, as even less experienced users can install and configure the application with minimum effort.
