This time I'll present you the new free Spyware Terminator antivirus program.
http://www.spywareterminator.comAfter playing with it here are the results & features of Spyware Terminator which I've found:
It has a light and almost intuitive easy to use interface. Virus scanning is fast and the program virus definitions are being updated daily. The software is reliable and could be used together with ClamAntivirus.
Program's executables take around 15mb of computer's memory. When compared with Norton Antivirus, BitDefender, Avast, Kaspersky(KAV) and Nod32 the program takes smallest amount of computer's memory.
The integrated real-time antivirus shield functions alright and actually stops virus infections. The program catches objects (spyware, adware, trojans & viruses) that both SpyBot and AdAware are missing.
For advanced users
Spyware Terminator has easy explainable processes database, allowing you to choose and keep only those that you actually need.
The full spyware and virus cleaning involves the free integrated antivirus ClamAV. Hint: If you experience that your computer has become slower than before just disable the ClamAV shield and you'll be fine.
Once finished with full spyware and virus scanning Spyware terminator enables its unique HIPS protection.
HIPS is short for Host Intrusion Prevention System - a system that maps the local files on your hard drive. Then if an unknown virus is found the antivirus easily restores the infected file without damaging it. There's no need to worry: the whole mapping will not slow your computer or take lot of your hard disk drive space.
Also nice feature of the program is that it manages and uninstalls easily the resident(remaining in computer's memory) viruses and trojans even the one spawned from processes such as explorer.exe without a need of system restart.
After each cleaning you'll see that Spyware Terminator creates a clean windows restore point. This allows you to get your system back when the computer has been in a good shape.
In case you find an unknown adware, virus or a trojan you can send the infected file to the spyware terminator labs for an examination - either with the application itself or using their website forum. In a few weeks the updated antivirus definitions will be released thus fixing your problem.
Deep file scanning
I recommend you to do a monthly deep file scan with SpywareTerminator & ClamAV combined and an option checked on detect alternate data streams. This way ST will scan for files hidden in the NTFS file system. The scan could take a while but it's worthy of discovering hidden rootkits and spyware on your system.
HOW to enable: Go to Settings->Scan Settings and check the option Scan Alternate File Streams
Playing games, installing software
If you switch to install mode you'll receive less notifying pop-ups from the application when installing a new trusted software. When done, just uncheck the install mode.
After downloading and installing, please update program's definitions.
Overall I can recommend this software to people who want to have a fast free antispyware/antivirus scanner & schield.
