Wise Anti Malware promises to deliver a security solution that can help you scan your computer for malware, while also keep it running at top performance at all times. With real-time protection against malware, this application can run quick, full, and custom analysis of the host PC, aiming to detect potentially dangerous content.
Run quick, full or custom scans to detect malware
The security status of your computer is displayed within the main window of the application, where you can turn real-time protection on and off, and view the date and time of the last analysis.
The quick scan takes a look at a few key sections of the system, namely the memory, installed programs, critical areas, the registry, installed drivers, startup items, and temporary folders. On the other hand, a full scan targets all the files on the PC, so it takes longer to complete. A bit different from the scan methods already mentioned, the quick check can identify issues related to privacy protection, adware, temporary files, registry entries, or browser cache.
Run PC maintenance and address adware components
Despite its name, Wise Anti Malware is not exclusively dedicated to finding and removing malware. In fact, it comes with an entire section dedicated to cleaning the system securely.
It can help you take care of file fragments, temporary and old data, log files and cache, shortcuts, and browser-specific items (history, cookies, autocomplete items and stored passwords). Furthermore, it allows you to run registry cleanup without compromising data.
What’s more, the application comprises an adware cleaner that can find pop-up advertisement apps and ad shortcuts, helping you remove them quickly.
Anti-malware and system optimization tool
It’s safe to say that Wise Anti Malware is both a security tool and a system maintenance application. But although it offers real-time protection, its security system has a long way to go before it can be compared to that of a dedicated antivirus or Internet security solution, which can offer zero-day protection and process monitoring.
Whether you decide to use it alongside your permanent security solution or not, what you should keep in mind is that prevention is better than fixing. In other words, you should avoid browsing the Internet carelessly, installing applications from untrusted sources, or opening unsolicited email.
