All users should choose the security product they install on their PC based on the app’s performance, ease-of-use and protection efficiency. herdProtect is meant to strengthen any protection by scanning the host PC with several AV engines.
herdProtect installs smoothly on any computer and it automatically detects all the anti-malware utilities that keep viruses, trojans and other malicious components at bay. Since it is a second line of defense, it does not conflict with the existing security app as it merely complements its function.
Its graphic interface is intuitive and user-friendly as one simply needs to press a dedicated button to start scanning their PC for suspicious items.
herdProtect initially scans all running processes on the computer, then moves on to the in-depth analysis of all files, drivers and startup items.
Once the scanning is complete, all the results are displayed within a neatly organized list where detections are sorted according to their type, such as adware or inconclusive. For each listed record, users can review detailed information, along with herdProtect’s recommendation - some of the items might need to be removed immediately, while others could be harmless so they can be ignored.
Considering the main advantage of herdProtect is that it includes multiple antivirus engines, it will display the assessment of several of them for the detected items.
Additionally, herdProtect enables users to save the scan results to a separate TXT file so that they can analyze it at a later time or compare it with other scan reports.
All in all, those who want to make sure that no malware will be able to infect their PC or who simply do not fully trust their security app, can try herdProtect and check the status of their computer. However, since it is does not provide real-time protection or removal options, one should still keep their full antivirus application installed on the same PC.
