Protecting the computer from malware is one of the most important tasks we have to take care as soon as the operating system is installed. Antivirus software is among the first to be installed on a new PC because in case a security solution is not present, that system has all the chances of being infected from the first moments it connects to the Internet.
If your computer somehow caught some nasty viruses, it's high time you resort to a dedicated tool that can help you find and remove the baddies. Such an application is Anti-Trojan Shield, a non-complicated utility that is able to scan and clean infected files on the spot.
With a simple interface and only a handful of settings to configure, this software addresses both experienced and less-experienced users. The trojan database is quite impressive and holds several tens of thousands of entries so the protection scope is quite broad when using Anti-Trojan Shield.
For those who want to have their PC checked thoroughly, there are a couple of options to be activated. Thus, the 'Heuristics Level' should be set to 'Max' so that all files are scanned with all the available algorithms and also the 'Archive scan' tick box should be checked.
What is more, Anti-Trojan Shield has another ace up its sleeve in the form of the 'Program code analysis' feature. Once you enable it, the application will be able to detect bits of more sophisticated malicious code at the expense of scanning speed which will decrease.
The 'Report' tab from the main window of this program displays the real-time progress of the process and you will be able to see the number of infected files or how many items per second are checked. If you need to quickly access the Registry Editor, the System Information window or run the Netstat utility, Anti-Trojan Shield will facilitate this if you head to the 'Utilities' menu.
All things considered, thanks to its impressive malware database and given the great ease of use, this application is surely among the best choices for anyone who needs to check and clean their system of trojan infections.
