TG Soft, the Italian anti-virus vendor, has come up with a freeware version of their security solution – VirIT eXplorer Lite malware scanner. It is able to scan and remove all types of malware, trojans and viruses from your Windows PC. It does not offer any complicated, confusing or complex interface. Rather, it has a very classic style of antivirus interface that allows you to select the disk drives and scan them for the possible infections of malware, spyware or other types of viruses. It can be used even if you have any other security solutions installed on your PC.
VirIT eXplorer Lite comes in a relatively smaller package of around 81 MB. After the installation, it starts to provide your PC with the protection from malware and harmful programs. However, while using this program, you may find some instances where the program text or the help file is available in Italian language only. This is to be expected as the program is touted as the – “only Italian antivirus, antispyware and antimalware software”.
You can begin the scanning of a disk drive by selecting it and then clicking on the scanner button. Before you begin the scan, you may want to click on the update button in the toolbar to update the virus signatures database for a much more accurate malware scan. During the scan, it checks the master boot records, boot sectors, registry keys and files for the presence of malware. By default, all infected files are cleaned automatically as soon as the infection is detected.
In addition to the manual scans, you can also schedule malware scans which is great for a weekly malware scan of your disks. This way, you can make sure that your PC stays protected and clean of malware infection without running the scan yourself.
