Straightforward GUI with intuitive controls
The application comes with the standard feature-set one would expect from such a tool, along with a user-friendly software interface that makes it easy even for those with little PC skills to benefit from its functions.
You basically need to launch the app and its built-in real-time protection, then leave it running in the background – as long as you set it to run at Windows startup, you might even forget you have such an app installed on your PC.
Scan folders, system software or memory
You get to easily initiate a manual scan (quick, full or custom) which can come in handy if you suspect that a file or folder might be infected. Unfortunately, you cannot schedule it to perform a specific type of scan on a regular basis.
Moreover, if you go for a custom analysis of your computer, you can choose the drives and folders you are interested in, as well as the PC areas that are usually most vulnerable: system memory, system and Internet Explorer settings, startup apps, frequently used programs or hijacked system software.
Automatically scan downloaded files
Another nifty feature of Tencent PC Manager is that it constantly monitors your computer and as soon as you download a file off the Internet, it thoroughly examines its contents, so as to notify you if any suspicious component is detected.
All in all, Tencent PC Manager can be a handy solution for all those looking to keep their PC malware-free without needing to operate complex software. It integrates in the context menu of Windows Explorer, so you can effortlessly scan whatever file or folder you choose.
