SpyWishDefender! is a simple to use antivirus software that can help you protect your computer against viruses or threats. The application can ensure your system’s safety in two modes: scanning the drives in order to identify threats, or offering real-time protection. In other words, the software can run in the background and block malicious content from being saved on your computer.
Identifying viruses by checksums
SpyWishDefender! is based on a MD5 checksum verification algorithm, that it applies in order to find matches for known viruses. The software can easily scan your entire system or just the selected volume and verify the hashes for all the files stored in it. The hash codes are quickly cross-matched with the entries in a vast virus database, that you can update at any time.
SpyWishDefender! allows you to perform the system scan any time you suspect malicious content has been saved in a local folder. Once the scan has started, the real-time statistics are displayed, such as number of analyzed folders, files and found threats. The progress bar indicates the process’s evolution. While the software marks the number of detected threats during the scan, it only displays the files at the end of the process.
Real-time protection and quarantine
At the end of the system scan, the software can display the infected files in the dedicated tab, where you can view and delete them. Alternatively, you can ignore them. SpyWishDefender! allows you to enable or disable the real-time protection. This type of security is designed to block malicious content from being downloaded on your computer, or notifying you that a dangerous file has just been saved. You may delete the file immediately, ignore the warning or move it to quarantine.
Issues in an otherwise reliable software
SpyWishDefender! is a reliable tool that can protect your computer against viruses or threats, in real time. However, most of the malicious files that SpyWishDefender! can detect are already being blocked by the basic Windows security functions. Moreover, once the computer scan starts, the software does not allow you to stop or pause it. You need to see it through or close the software.
