Nowadays, the Internet is the main choice for communication, file sharing and looking for information. Nevertheless, browsing in the dark alleys of the web could result in malware surreptitiously sabotaging your privacy.
BkavPro Internet Security is one of the many solutions to prevent infecting your computer. It is a lightweight antivirus program that tries to protect your PC using a cloud database server.
The program offers you a rather simple and tab-based interface, allowing any type of user to easily access its features.
When running the program for the first time, you are prompted to download the latest virus definitions, in order to ensure that the protection works properly.
Real time protection is automatically enabled and the program monitors your computer from the system tray. Thus, when an infected file enters your system, BkavPro Internet Security notifies you, removes the threat and records the performed action to the log.
If you want to scan your PC, you can choose a full scan, a drive scan or a directory scan. The quick scan option is also available, if you want to save time. Still, you are announced that the first scan might take longer, as the program connects to the cloud server.
For each of the scanning methods, you have several advanced scanning options at your disposal. For example, you can optionally choose to scan the rootkit or the packed files. Furthermore, the program can be set to auto clean the detected threats and backup files before cleaning.
BkavPro Internet Security is a useful program, yet it does not offer you many possibilities for customization as other similar programs do. For example, you have no control over firewall options. Furthermore, the program can scan your computer by accessing the database server, thus if you are not connected to the Internet, this may not be a reliable solution for you.
