Ashampoo Anti-Virus is an advanced and user-friendly protection solution whose main purpose is to help you keep your computer at bay from infections, be they viruses, trojans or other forms of malware.
The program features a 'Real-Time Protection' function that heuristically guards your PC, detecting a virus the instant it tries to attack your system and countering its effects, so no harm can come to either your machine or the security of your personal information.
Ashampoo Anti-Virus features four different types of analysis, namely 'Full System Scan', 'Quick Scan', 'Removable Drives' and 'User-Defined', allowing you to choose whichever best applies to the situation at hand.
With the 'Full System Scan', the application goes through all your system, thoroughly checking all the contents of your hard disk, while the 'Quick Scan' will only analyze the most important areas and folders. Using the 'Removable Drives' option, you can scan USB sticks and other similar devices, in order to make sure they do not infect your computer.
The 'User-Defined' scan enables you to manually select the folder or files you want to verify. This specific feature integrates into your Windows context menu, so you can simply right-click an item and choose the option to 'Scan with Ashampoo Anti-Virus'.
Aside from protecting your machine from malicious attacks, the anti-virus also contains several 'Tools', such as 'File Wiper', that allows you to completely shred sensitive documents. 'Internet Cleaner' can assist you in analyzing your web browsers and detecting all Internet traces (cookies, history, accessed pages, etc) which you can delete with a single press of a button. Other components include 'StartUp Tuner', 'LSP Viewer' and 'Hosts File Checker'.
Ashampoo Anti-Virus is a comprehensive and reliable security tool that enables you to protect yourself and your PC against outside threats, like keyloggers, rootkits, viruses, trojans, spyware and adware, worms and countless other dangers.
