SecureAge SecureAPlus is a combination of standard antivirus and application blocker. It can not only detect and remove malware, viruses, trojans, rootkits etc. from your computer, but it can also whitelist which applications you want to run on your PC. It uses the free ClamAV antivirus engine and definitions along with its own application whitelisting technology.
You can download SecureAPlus from the SecureAge software website. The download is a nearly 2 megabytes installation setup file which further downloads more data from the internet during the installation. After the installation, it would place an icon in the notification area and start scanning your hard disks for all EXE files which would be automatically whitelisted unless are malicious in nature. This process may take a long time.
You can access the main window of SecureAPlus by double-clicking on the notification area icon. In the main window, you can access the ScureAPlus settings, view whitelisted applications, update antivirus database, toggle real time virus scanning, scan your computer for malware and check the infected items in the quarantine.
If you open the SecureAPlus settings, you would be able to change the options like update settings like update servers and automatic update settings. You can also add folders and files to the exclusion list. These items in the exclusion list would be excluded from real time scanning. You can also specify the file types that should be scanned for malware by the antivirus.
If you access the application whitelisting from the main window (or from the notification area icon), it would show you all the applications that are added to the whitelist. You can also change options related to the whitelisting of applications. For example, you can choose to trust the digitally signed applications even if they are not in the whitelisting database. You can choose to automatically block an untrusted application when its run without asking for permission.
SecureAPlus is a solution that provides you with free antivirus and application blocker. But it may show too many permission asking windows when you run new applications which is very much undesired by most of the people. Besides it uses the open source Clam antivirus which is not very good in performance. If you decide to use it, it is suggested that you install another good antivirus product on your PC first. SecureAPlus gives you one year of free license for using it on your computer.
