MCShield 3.0.5.28

A smart and reliable utility whose main purpose is to provide users with a simple means of preventing infections transmitted through USB drives
MCShield is a simple-to-use program that allows you to protect your USB flash drives against malware, by identifying and quarantining any malicious agents. It targets all types of users, regardless of their level of experience.

After a brief installation procedure, you can check out a standard window with a well-defined layout, representing MCShield's interface.

So, you can make the app scan all flash drives, memory cards and hard disk drives at startup, perform an in-depth signature scan only in case of infection, as well as enable extended heuristics.

In addition, you can enable paranoid and interactive modes, always show items on the flash drive, make the tool delete all suspicious files automatically, view a list of quarantined objects, as well as create a whitelist.

MCShield can be set to automatically run at system startup, and you can allow MCS Cloud functions and hide notifications about drive cleaning, among others.

The program offers multilingual support, has a good response time and runs on a very low amount of CPU and system memory. No error dialogs have been shown throughout our evaluation and the app did not hang or crash; we haven't encountered any issues. 

All in all, MCShield provides a simple yet effective protection solution for USB flash drives and similar storage units against malware, and its features can be seamlessly figured out, thanks to its intuitive layout.
