Ashampoo Anti-Virus has been equipped with two scanning engines (Bitdefender and Emsisoft), allowing comprehensive protection of the computer against viruses, Trojans, worms, malware and rootkits, bots, as well as advertising components and stealing confidential information. In addition to on-demand scanning functions that can cover the entire system, system area and user-specified locations, the software also offers an access scanner that automatically runs in the background to check for potentially infected files when saving, copying, etc.
In addition, the user receives modules (consisting of a real-time protection mechanism) to search for hidden processes and files, monitor entries added in autostart, install LSP / BHO components and changes in the hosts file. However, the possibilities of Ashampoo Anti-Virus do not end there. A set of several useful tools was put at the user's disposal, which additionally allows for the security of confidential data and privacy. We find among them the function of irreversible deleting files, deleting files from the browser cache, cookies and the history of visited websites, scanning NTFS disks in search of invisible from Windows Explorer streams, as well as viewing and stopping selected processes.
There was also a quarantine mechanism in which infected files are stored, automatic updates - both the program itself, as well as virus signatures, and task schedule options, allowing to plan, among others, cyclical system scan.
