Xvirus Anti-Malware, formerly known as Xvirus Personal Guard, is a security software that promises to protect your Windows from malware. It is a secondary anti-malware software whose goal is to run alongside your main antivirus and offer an additional layer of security to block malware which your main security software may miss.
Xvirus is designed to be a free security tool and it follows the free policy genuinely. The tool is entirely free, no limits, no ads, and adware. Although, there is a paid version available which comes with additional features which most of you may not even require.
Xvirus Anti-Malware comes with multiple shields that can simultaneously monitor file system, network, and system. The real-time protection enhances security over the conventional antivirus. The program keeps an eye and all the changes made to the computer are monitored for malicious activities. The shields can be easily enabled/disabled from the main window itself.
You can also scan your computer. Three different types of scans available. They are ‘Quick Scan’, ‘Full Scan and a ‘Custom Scan’. You can customize your scan as per your need and the files to be covered during the scan.
The program also adds an option to quickly scan a file or folder in the right-click context menu. Any file scanned and reported by the software can be deleted directly or moved to quarantine.
You can customize all the basic as well as advanced settings. You can change the maximum file size to be scanned or setup scan scheduler. Also, you can change the action to be performed after a threat has been found.
Other protection related settings can also be changed. Heuristics on scans can be enabled/disabled. There is also an option available to enable executable-only scan. The program can monitor startup entries and detect suspicious scripts running on your computer.
Xvirus Anti-Malware claims to double up as an anti-ransomware tool. It comes with all the necessary functionality to prevent you from any ransomware attacks.
Another feature in the software is the ‘Auto Mode’. Once you’ve enabled the auto mode all you need to do is sit back and relax. The program would take care of all your decisions regarding deleting files or taking necessary actions with them.
Xvirus Anti-Malware seems to be a good tool, but there is not much else known about it or its company, except for the fact it is developed by a Portuguese company. If you would like to check it out you can get it from its home page. They also offer a free Xvirus Personal Firewall.
