An anti-virus is the most important tool which is installed on the system. It acts like a guard which protects all the important files, registries and other application on your system. So, selecting a good anti-virus is very important and the anti-virus which I will be reviewing today has many desirable features. which is known as Kingsoft anti-virus.
We have already viewed many anti-virus tools such as ‘AVG 2009’ and ‘Kaspersky’ but this tool has its own advantages which can be proffered over them. This freeware provides smart and effective protection to your system with low utilization of you CPU memory and all this happens with the help of Cloud technology used by this freeware. It is not like any other tool, which will be free for first few months, instead it will be permanently free. It will also monitor the webpage when you will be surfing and will perform an automatic scan, if any external storage device is connected to it. It has three types of general scan, one of them is Custom scan, Quick Scan and Full scan.
As you can see from the application window and I have already mentioned about the three scans. The storage slots for Quick scan and Full Scan are already pre-defined, but the under Custom scan you can choose the sectors of your hard disk which are to be scanned. Under the settings option it has four important features, which are to be used.
The first one is the USB protection, which will be responsible for the secondary storage devices which are connected to your system, this feature will guard your system from the threats coming from secondary devices. Second one, is the Cloud Security this feature will be responsible to control the threats coming from internet. Third one is the IM protection or I should say Instant Messages Protection, this is responsible for the threats coming from Instant Messages tool like Gmail, Yahoo Messenger, RediffBol and many such tools and finally the forth one is Download protection, this feature will keep an eye on all the files which are being downloaded intentionally or if they are getting stored in the Temp folder.
Besides all these features it also offers a similar type of protection as offered by other anti-virus tools. the size of this tool is small and light as compared to other antivirus tools, the size of this tool is around 16 Mb. So it will be very light for your system. This tool is compatible with all the versions of Windows as it has been checked with Windows 7 32-bit Ultimate edition.
