Scan your computer for malware and dangerous files, adware and other malicious components with the help of this intuitive application
GridinSoft Anti-Malware (formerly Trojan Killer) is an intuitive application that packs comprehensive features for detecting and eliminating Trojans, spyware, adware, rogue agents and other e-threats from your computer, mainly addressing professional users.
Get thorough details on scanned files
An automatic scan for signature definitions is performed at startup, immediately followed by a computer scan.
Statistics reveals total memory items, registry items and scanned files, along with detected Trojan infections. Log details show the name, virus type and targeted file path for each infected item. This report is automatically saved to a plain text document.
Making sure files are not left infected
Some selections detected during the scan may require an in-depth analysis, so you can submit them for a thorough inspection. As for the remaining items, you can either remove them from the machine or mark them as false positives.
Various advanced options to manage
Power users may tinker with settings to enable deep scan mode (slow but effective), terminate memory threats while scanning, disable heuristics rules, as well as to ignore suspicious packers, loaders, incomplete files, and files whose size surpasses 16Mb.
It is possible to disable logging, set GridinSoft Anti-Malware to autorun at startup, choose the program startup scan mode (standard, quick, full, removable), edit proxy parameters, and disable notification sounds.
Browse the Internet the safe way
Another notable feature is represented by a real-time scanner that prevents e-threats from infiltrating into your system. Extra tools let you reset browser settings, update policies and the Hosts file, scan Windows components (ActiveX, Windows services, IE extensions, startup links), collect system information and check out all GridinSoft Anti-Malware log files, plus the quarantine list.
Requiring a decent amount of resources
The feature-packed antivirus system offers multilingual support and has a very good response time. However, it demands a massive amount of memory to work properly, so users might experience stability issues on older OS platforms. Other than that, GridinSoft Anti-Malware offers a simple solution for successfully eliminating viruses rapidly, backed up by a highly intuitive environment.
To sum it up, GridinSoft Anti-Malware may not be the best of its kind when it comes to keeping your computer safe from various infiltrations. However, it manages to combine a pleasant interface with a handful of helpful tools that make it worth at least a try.
