Dr.Web Anti-virus 10.0.0.12160
An intuitive yet powerful antivirus software utility that helps users make sure their computer does not get infected with malware infections
The main interface of the program presents you with three scanning options: Express, Complete and Custom. The Express option scans the essential system locations such as the memory and the operating system.
You need to use the Complete scan option if you want to scan the entire computer and the storage devices. This scanning type also includes the removable devices such as USB hard drives or portable memory sticks.
If you just connected a storage device and need to scan its content you should use the Custom scan. This option also allows you to select important folders that are likely to be infected such as the temporary files or the Documents folder.
The interface of the program is easy to use and flexible when you need to configure the actions to be taken when infected files are detected. It allows you to select the default option for each threat type.
Besides the file scanner, the program includes a mail scanner that scans the messages and marks the suspicious ones in order to be treated with the required attention. Since the email is one of the frequent means to spread malware, it can be a useful addition to your security toolkit.
The SpIDer Guard module permanently monitors the computer activity and blocks the processes or activities that resemble virus behavior. You can customize it to block autorun actions and to scan inside the installers accessed by the user.
Overall, Dr.Web is a practical tool that provides the basic means for defending your computer against viruses and malware programs.
