Description

Once a person has had an unfortunate incident of losing digital documents as a result of viruses, worms, Trojans or any other attack on their PC, the first remedy is usually to enhance computer security. It is not unusual for that person to become paranoid and keep on running a series of scans to ensure that the computer is free from attacks or virus infection. After all, it is better to be safe than sorry. However, viruses, malware and Trojans keep on evolving and security software that was once effective might be rendered ineffective. A person should always ensure that the security software that they have is up to date and effective in protecting the computer system. At times however, particular security software might be up to date but still incapable of detecting or cleaning the computer system. During such times the convenient measure would be to install security software that would complement the initial software. The Avira PC Cleaner is one such application.

Features

The cleaner is a tool that scans the disk for viruses. The cleaner does not need installation which means that it cannot be blocked by malware or viruses. Since the cleaner works on demand; meaning it does not remain in the background like most ant viruses. The software helps to analyze the folders on the disk and informs whether there are any malicious programs present. It requires no installation one simply opens it and downloads the main executable file and locates the malware. It immediately analyzes the folders that are likely to contain the malware It has a full scan option for scanning the entire disk. After the scan, a window pops up giving alerts of the potentially harmful malware and provides options for knowing more about the file and how to clean or remove it.

Comparison

The good thing about the software is that it is able to work on any system that has an OS of Windows XP, SP3 and above. The software does not need installation or registration; neither does it install drivers onto the system.

Conclusion

The Avira PC Cleaner is convenient for use when a person suspects that the computer has got a malware infection that is preventing the antivirus from working effectively. It has a scanner that can be used in parallel with other security or anti malware software.
