Anvi Smart Defender Review

Fernando Ortega
A freeware and highly recommended anti-malware tool
A review of Anvi Smart Defender by Fernando Ortega

Malware and viruses are a huge issue online today and once you're infected with one, it's likely you're going to continue getting infected with more and more viruses as they tend to proliferate. With Anvisoft's Anvi Smart Defender, you're given a freeware solution to defending yourself from online malware threats.

This antivirus software/anti-malware application offers a level of cloud computing protection which is unlike many of the other programs on the market today. It scans your system for malware infections extremely effectively and does it at high speed.

From within the Anvi Smart Defender main interface, you're given access to five buttons which mirror the program functionality: Scan, Cloud, Guard, Optimize and Update. Of course, the last option is simply a way to keep the software updated and the others are pretty self-explanatory, but let's go over them.

The Scan offers two separate options for scanning your system. The first being "Quick Scan" followed by the Full Scan. If you've installed Anvi Smart Defender for the first time, we highly suggest running the full scan to take advantage of the powerful scanner that this application has to offer.

Compared to many other anti-malware applications that we've tried out, this has got to be one of the fastest and it is very likely to find atleast something on most machines that isn't desirable. After Smart Defender has found a threat, it quickly gets to work to remove it and you're even able to upload the files (via the Upload button) to Anvi's servers to check whether the file really is malware. In some cases, it returns a false positive and everything is alright.

The optimization features of this application are also pretty good, though they don't necessarily surpass the quality of other programs which specialize in system optimization software. The main functions from within Optimize are the disk defragment tool, the registry cleaner, the privacy cleaner and the memory sweep -- all pretty self-explanatory.

The program include a help system which is HTML-based and pretty comprehensive, though since the program is fairly well-designed, it isn't that important to have it handy.

The bottom line, this program is an excellent anti-malware application which excels in that category and though it includes some other system optimization tools, they are a bonus. If you suspect you're infected by a virus and Smart Defender isn't finding it, just remember that Anvi Smart Defender is not a fully-fledged antivirus program (yet) and you might want to look elsewhere to get that sorted. This program is highly recommended.
