Keeping your computer protected and your data safe is highly important in today's always-connected environment, and installing an antivirus program is often one of the most convenient solutions you can adopt.
Those of you who are looking for a lightweight program that can keep their data safe can take ELCOR Anti-Virus for a spin. It is easy-to-use and light on computer resources and has been designed to find infected files on your computer and help you clean them.
The program provides you with the possibility to scan your computers for any viruses and to remove infections before your data is compromised. Its capabilities are pretty straightforward, as it can perform full and quick scans of the PC, and you can also use it for manual scans when needed.
You can schedule scans to be performed each day at a desired time, and you can keep an eye on the progress of the operation directly from the tool's main window. Moreover, you can manually search for infections on particular drives or directories.
ELCOR Anti-Virus has been packed with a real-time protection engine that can detect infected files and block them or move them to quarantine before they harm your computer. It also offers info on the number of performed scans and the discovered infections, directly on its main window.
The tool comes with support for a game mode, which can be activated or deactivated from the Settings tab. It can also be switched to a “ Detect Only” mode, which could prove useful when running resource-intensive applications.
One of the downsides of the software is the fact that it includes only the virus detection engine, and that it might not protect you from spyware, phishing and other types of online attacks. Its malware detection rate is also lower than that of other antivirus programs, most probably because it is a new product that still requires improvements.
Although the program does not affect the computer performance when running a scan, courtesy of its low resource needs, the actual scanning process is usually lengthier than you might expect. A quick scan could take more than 15 minutes, while a full scan more than double that time.
All in all, ELCOR Anti-Virus is an easy-to-use tool that can help you scan your computer for viruses and remove infections. It lacks the speed and detection rate of similar tools out there, but it features and intuitive interface, is light on resources, and allows you to schedule scans or perform them manually.
