Avira PC Cleaner
Having an efficient security product installed on your computer is a must if you want to make sure your PC does not get infected with all sorts of malware components, such as spyware, viruses, rootkits, adware or worms. However, you can also rely on additional applications that can provide you with increased protection, such as Avira PC Cleaner.
The utility does not actually install on your computer, which means it does not use drivers or dedicated services that would permit it to offer you real-time protection. Instead, you can turn to it whenever you suspect your PC has been infected and the current antivirus solution did not detect anything wrong.
Once you run Avira PC Cleaner on your computer, it will download all required files to a temporary folder, while also adding two icons on your desktop for launching the app and the other one for removing it from the PC.
Avira PC Cleaner enables you to initiate a quick or a full scan of your system, whenever need arises - the full one takes a longer time to complete, so it should only be chosen when you have a lot of time to spare.
Depending on the status of the host computer, the suspicious files are displayed, so as to give you the possibility to remove them from your PC.
Additionally, you can copy Avira PC Cleaner to your USB device, so you can carry it with you with ease, then launch it regardless of the computer you are using (since it should be used as a second line of defense, this app runs smoothly alongside other antivirus products, so no conflicts will ensue).
All in all, Avira PC Cleaner can come in handy to all users looking for more security on their computer, yet it should not be used as a replacement for a full-fledged antivirus tool.
