While most computer users are aware that they should protect their PCs against malware threats using a fully functional and constantly updated antivirus solution, few of them are also willing to pay for a license, so they choose freeware products instead. Such a freeware option is Rising Antivirus Free Edition, a feature-packed app for detecting and blocking malicious elements.
During installation, one can choose the skins and additional components they want to install, such as a tool to backup the current virus database to the hard disk for later use.
The graphic interface is intuitive and it allows users to specify the type of scan they want to start with, be it quick, thorough or custom, where only certain folders and partitions are analyzed, along with the critical areas of the PC (such as RAM, Boot or system messages).
Rising Antivirus Free Edition comes with several integrated tools that can help users strengthen their protection against trojan horses, backdoors, rootkits, worms and viruses, including mail monitoring, browser protection and automatic scanning of plugged in USB devices (the application can block creation of autorun.inf).
Furthermore, users with advanced computer knowledge can even fine-tune the protection level so that it automatically blocks and moves threats to the quarantine or instead allows the user to choose the action to be taken when a threat is detected.
Rising Antivirus Free Edition also protects browsers and Office apps against targeted attacks due to its defense against loopholes and trojan detection within reinforced browsers.
All in all, this software solution comes in handy to all those who want to keep their computers virus-free yet who cannot afford purchasing a license for a professional product, as long as they only want to use it at home. Unlike other similar apps, Rising Antivirus Free Edition can also protect against new threats and unknown viruses, thus blocking all attacks before they can cause any damage.
