Ashampoo AntiVirus description
Gives you comprehensive protection against viruses, worms, Trojans and dialers
Ashampoo AntiVirus will give you comprehensive protection against viruses, Trojans, worms, Trojans and dialers, but it’s so efficient you won’t even notice it’s there. And it’s so easy to use that it won’t waste any of your valuable time. Just set it and forget it and get on with more important things.
Once you have installed Ashampoo AntiVirus protection is automatic. It checks all new files and activity on your computer for both known threats and suspicious behavior and stops attacks before they can do any damage.
Malicious hackers are creating new threats every day and an antivirus program is only as good as its updates. Ashampoo AntiVirus recognizes over 470,000 different threats.
It comes with a year of free updates and the virus signatures are updated several times a day with information on the latest threats. Just switch on automatic protection and update checking and let the program take care of everything else for you.
You don’t need to know everything that Ashampoo AntiVirus does to protect you but it may interest you: It doesn’t just scan email attachments and new files for threats. It also scans your computer’s memory and all critical system areas.
If you want you can also define your own customized scans to perform systematic checks of all or part of your system, including removable media like CDs and DVDs and even external and portable devices.
A special intelligent system known as heuristics analysis is used to identify as-yet unknown threats on the basis of suspicious behavior and stop them before they can do any damage.
When infections are found you can choose to clean them immediately or you can put them in quarantine. This is a special protected area where the infected files cannot do any damage but they can be recovered if necessary ? for example if you discover that the threat identified was harmless.
All the operations performed by the program are recorded in detail in log files. You can view the contents of the logs at any time.A context menu item is added to Windows Explorer that enables you to scan files directly without starting Ashampoo AntiVirus.
