MalwareSecure is a comprehensive and approachable anti-malware application designed to protect your computer from various online perils, such as viruses and spyware. It features a real-time guard and several scanning methods.
The installation procedure doesn't take a long time to finish, and you can select the server source for update definitions (global or network).
Once it finishes, MalwareSecure creates an icon in the systray at startup and immediately turns on its real-time safeguard against malware.
The main application window has a clear-cut structure, dividing the protection, scan, update and logs components in separate panes. In the first pane you can check out the current protection status of the computer, web, removable device and code emulations, in addition to the automatic update frequency and last scan time.
There are three scanning methods: quick, full and custom. During this task, you can check out the total number of currently scanned objects and cleaned threats, together with the scan time.
It's possible to pause the scanner to temporarily allocate system resources to other applications, and to set the PC to automatically turn off on task completion. When it finishes, MalwareSecure pops up a balloon message from the systray, so you can carry on with your normal PC activity in the meantime.
Any identified threats are sent to the quarantine, which you can later inspect to decide whether the affected files should be eliminated from the computer or spared.
The application records its activity to logs, so you can investigate details surrounding the protection status, scan jobs, software updates, devices, events, and the quarantine.
As far as program customization is concerned, MalwareSecure lets you disable the entire protection system or the antivirus, anti-spyware, low-risk programs and code emulation modules. By default, it verifies files when they are opened or copied, but you can deactivate this option.
Furthermore, you can make the utility scan all files matching specific extensions or all of them, block the creation of new files, remove network shares from the scan scope, set the file size limit, and indicate exclusion filters with folders, drives, files or extensions.
It's also possible to redefine the scan scope of the quick, full and custom scan types separately, either by including or excluding the antivirus, anti-spyware and anti-malware components, rootkit detection, low-risk programs, cookies, the Windows registry, active processes, archives, and low priority scan mode (to favor system resource consumption). Once again, you can establish exclusion filters.
All removable drives are taken into account for the device scan module. You can set a USB password, deny access for any selected drive, or set other restrictions. Quick or full scans can be scheduled to run automatically on any preferred week days.
What's more, you can disable notifications, enable a remote console to be able to control MalwareSecure from another PC, and restrict other users' access to the program by protecting it with a password.
No error dialogs popped up in our tests, and the tool didn't hang or crash. It had minimal impact on computer performance and ran silently in the background without disturbing our regular PC session.
All in all, MalwareSecure features advanced and intuitive options and configuration parameters to help you eliminate and prevent malware threats, so feel free to test it for yourself.
