Softpedia Editor's Review for USB Protector
Remove Autorun viruses from USB removable storage devices and pendrives
Written by Elena Opris on May 15th, 2013
USB Protector is a simple-to-use yet effective application that identifies malicious agents on your USB flash drives and removes them. It addresses all types of users, regardless of their level of experience.
The interface of the program is made from a standard window with a clean and stylish layout, where you can enable real-time and write protection. The latter option prevents users from copying any data to the flash drive.
In addition, you can perform a deep scan; even if it may take a long time to finish, this malware scanning method is thorough.
It is also possible to encrypt files by assigning a password to them, as well as to make USB Protector automatically run at system startup.
The program requires a low-to-moderate quantity of CPU and system memory, so it shouldn't put a strain on the computer's resources. It has a good response time and finishes a scanning job rapidly, without making the operating system hang, crash or pop up error dialogs.
Unfortunately, the utility has not been updated for a file. Moreover, you cannot minimize it to the system tray area, create a white list or switch to a different language for the UI. Nevertheless, first-time users can quickly get adjusted to USB Protector's features.
