Clearsight Antivirus Description
Clearsight Antivirus is designed to protect your computer from viruses, spyware and other types of malware. It features a real-time safeguard, multiple scan modes, and a quarantine manager.
Settings up the AV environment
After a fast setup operation that needs minimal user assistance, the AV tool creates an icon in the systray and automatically turns on its real-time guard. It downloads the latest virus definitions and asks you to start by running a full system scan to obtain a security assessment of your machine.
The main control panel has a simple look and well-structured layout, keeping the overview, scanner, actions, settings, and account details organized in separate areas.
Multiple scan modes and quarantine manager
There are three scan modes available: quick, full, and custom (folders only). Malware checkups may also be performed on any selected files through the context menu. Plus, scans are scheduled by default.
During a scan job, you can check out the full path of the currently scanned item, elapsed time, scanned objects, along with the type of each malware agent detected by Clearsight Antivirus.
Quarantined objects can be permanently removed from the disk or restored to their original location. It’s also possible to create a whitelist with files or folders, examine log details with scans and the product’s activity, as well as to disable real-time and scheduled scans. Settings can be reverted to default.
Performance and conclusion
The tool didn’t hog system performance during scan jobs in our tests and delivered good results concerning malware detection ratio. However, it took a very long time to complete scans and to quarantine items. On top of that, the real-time module didn’t automatically react when it should have.
All in all, Clearsight Antivirus has straightforward configuration settings for facilitating malware protection. However, it still needs more work.
Additional features, such as scheduled scan settings and a web protection module, can be found in the Pro and Premium editions of the tool.
