Even with the built-in Microsoft Defender being up to the task for the majority of uses, having a reliable antivirus solution as a backup isn't a bad idea. Running scans manually through such a solution should serve you well in the long run, as it can help identify any problems that the built-in Defender may fail to recognize.

Combo Cleaner is an interesting offer in that regard. It's an antivirus solution that can perform quick scans on your computer for malware, as well as help you save some storage space by locating big files and duplicates on your drives.

The core part of the program lies in its dual identity: besides being an anti-malware scanner, the solution also features a few disk tools to help you manage some of your files. Though its main duty is to find and remove malware from your computer, the Free version is rather limited in that sense.

As such, users of the Free version will only be able to perform quick scans to look for malware. These shouldn't take more than 10 minutes, but your mileage may vary based on your configuration. Whether the tool is genuinely proficient in finding and removing malware is difficult to ascertain, but not allowing users to run a full system scan might prevent one from finding such viruses in their system.

Several protections can be set in place for the Quick Scan process. Protections for email security, processes, Registry, and cookies number among the available options. Users can set up scheduled scans as well.

As claimed before, the program also features two disk tools to help users cut down on some wasted storage space. The tool can find big files, as well as duplicates, on the user's computer. First off, you'll have to add a folder for the program to scan within, and you'll be presented with the offending files. The process doesn't take long at all, and the software is generally quick overall.

Combo Cleaner is an easy-to-utilize antivirus solution, which also doubles as a disk utility of sorts. It seems to do well in the case of the latter, but as far as its anti-malware prerogatives are concerned, it's best you run a quick scan on your system to see if it uncovers anything.
