The Internet is filled with various malicious files that could potentially infect your computer. That's why it's important to use an application that helps protect and remove viruses, worms, and more.
System Shield is a very nice antivirus application that does just that and more. It's packed with all sorts of neat tools for keeping your system safe.
Visually appealing graphical interface with plenty of tools
The application doesn't take long to install, but you will have to remove any other antivirus program that you have installed on your device so that the two won't conflict.
The first thing that you need to do after launching the application is to update the virus database and perform a complete scan on your computer. System Shield doesn't take long to perform scans, but you will have to be patient until it finishes.
Scan your device to find malware
It displays the number of items that it scanned, together with files quarantined, deleted or renamed. You can enable real-time protection and set actions for infected data.
There's the option to quarantine an infected file or archive. Enable notifications for when an infection is found and specify the directories that you would like the application to scan.
You can also select specific file types to be analyzed, together with the option to exclude certain folders or files.
Stay protected with this antivirus
Email protection can be enabled and you have the option to start the program when the computer is booted. In addition, you can set automatic scans, simply pick the days of the week and hours, when you would like System Shield to perform scans.
Other than that, the application lacks some other basic features that many antivirus solutions have, like the option to protect your personal files with a password or to prevent spying and data theft.
Still, System Shield is well worth a try if you're looking for a simplistic antivirus program with basic protection and easy-to-use features.
