Kingsoft Antivirus is a complete solution for protecting your computer against potentially dangerous content that may affect your system while navigating online. Using a cloud database server, this lightweight antivirus program can scan your PC for threats and block virus attacks.
The program offers you a simple and well-organized interface that displays the status of each defense module (enabled or disabled) and allows you to start your first quick scan.
The 'Virus Scan' section offers you three alternatives to scan your system: you can perform a full scan (for the system memory and other important locations, as well as the hard disk), a quick scan or a custom scan (the user is allowed to select the files and folders to scan). The USB drive scan is a separate option that you can use to detect and clean any malware activity on your removable drives.
Real-time protection is automatically enabled and the application monitors your PC from the system tray. When an infected file enters your system, Kingsoft Antivirus notifies you, removes the threat (or sends it to the quarantine section) and records the action to the log.
You can enable or turn off any of the available defense modules: 'Web Defense' (blocks online threats), 'IM Defense' (protects your privacy while chatting online), 'Video Defense' (secures your system while watching online videos), 'Download Shield' (scans all the downloads), 'USB Defense' or 'System Defense'.
Just like any other antivirus solution, the program requires user feedback and interaction, but you can set custom actions and define rules for managing different situations. Moreover, when enabled, the 'Silent Mode' prevents the antivirus program to prompt any popup messages and delays auto update in order to avoid interruptions while you work or play games.
The 'IE Firewall' prevents malicious and unauthorized IE modifications, while the 'Anti-Hacker' module fixes vulnerabilities that can be exploited by hackers. Together with the scan exclusion list, these features make Kingsoft Antivirus an all-in-one security solution.
