Softpedia Editor's Review for Twister Antivirus (formerly Twister Anti-TrojanVirus)
A different, amazing, intelligent anti-virus software
Written by Sorin Cirneala on February 15th, 2013
Twister Antivirus is a security solution that aims to provide you with the basic tools for keeping your computer safe from virus attacks. It is a flexible program designed to detect threats and remove them with minimum effort.
The app includes antivirus protection tools and firewall components that enable you to protect your registry and other private information from being modified or accessed. You can customize the level of protection by selecting the components that you want to keep active.
As most antivirus applications, it allows you to scan the entire computer or only the memory and the OS folder in order to detect imminent threats. The user can also scan a certain folder or file by using the context menu.
An interesting feature is the ability to "set traps" for preventing threats that are detected and removed repeatedly. These traps can be configured to prevent a certain file or registry item from being created, modified or removed without your consent. The same approach can be applied for the computer processes.
The program can use the speech recognition engine to provide voice feedback and to accept voice commands. This enables you to control the program without using the keyboard or the mouse.
The Tools section includes a set of utilities that provide you with additional information and lets you fix certain problems with the registry. The Registry Fixer includes quick fixes that can enable the registry editor or clean the autorun traps set by trojans with just one click.
Although Twister Antivirus uses the Resource Balancing technology, it had a noticeable impact on the computer performance during the scan. The speed of the scan is above average since it took about one hour to scan the system partition with all the installed programs.
Overall, Twister Antivirus is a useful tool for keeping your computer clean and preventing virus infections.
