Editors' review

Anvi Smart Defender helps you keep your computer clear of all types of viruses and malware using both local and cloud scan engines. This technique enables Smart Defender to provide better protection through quicker and more accurate identification of harmful files and programs.

Pros

Multiple scanning options: You can choose to run a Full Scan or Quick Scan anytime you open the program. And if you're more experienced using these types of programs, you can take advantage of the Custom Scan option.

Clear data presentation: Scan results are presented in a way that makes them understandable to even the least experienced users. While scanning is underway, you can see updated totals on the number of items scanned, number of threats found, overall scanning progress, and the duration of the scan.

Cons

Long full scan: A full scan is very thorough, but it takes a long time, sometimes upwards of half an hour. That doesn't have to be a huge inconvenience, though, as long as you know to expect it and plan ahead.

Bottom Line

Anvi Smart Defender works well to keep your computer protected from all types of malicious software. There are also other features including Malware Protection and Anti-Hacker Options that show up in the interface of the free version of this app, and in the scan results, but that you can't actually use unless you upgrade to the pro version of the app. The cost of this upgrade varies depending on how many licenses you purchase and how long they are good for, but a single license for one year costs $24.98.

    "Recommended."

    April 30, 2014   |   By Son_of_Earth

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 2.0

    Pros

    Realtime protection.
    Webprotection.
    Updates regularly.
    Scan times are fair.

    Cons

    Slows down system noticeably.
    False positives may happen.

    Summary

    The free version is recommended but if you want additional protection you'd have to buy the pro version.
    It caught the few malware/warez I have in my system but I already knew they were there. The false positives were game mods for Generals ZH from SWR productions (ShockWave and Rise of the reds).

    "THE ONE FOR ME."

    March 02, 2014   |   By TOCAN734

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.9.3

    Pros

    I HAD A VIRUS I USED ABOUT FOUR DIFFERNT ANTIVIRUS PRODUCTS AND NONE OF THEM DETECTED THE VIRUS WITH A QUICK SCAN. I TRIED ANVI SMART DEFENDER FREE VERSION. IT DETECTED THE VIRUS PLUS 6 OTHER PROBLEMS. REMOVED THEM AND NOW MY COMPUTER WORKS GREAT AND FAST.

    Cons

    MAYBE TOO MANY POP UPS OF WARNINGS BUT YOU CAN SHUT THEM DOWN.

    "Additional coverage that augments your A/V Program"

    January 27, 2014   |   By StageRt

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.9.3

    Pros

    Easy to set up. The UI is pretty straight forward.

    Cons

    Has ads placed prominently on the UI which is a little DUMB!

    Summary

    I like the way it works and it proves, once again, no single A/V or security product does everything.

    "An extra layer of security"

    January 17, 2014   |   By jmartinez_431

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.9.3

    Pros

    - Easy to use
    - GUI is clean and easy to understand (version 1.9.3)
    - Real time protection and detection
    - Scheduled scanning option for automated scans
    - Can upload files to the CLOUD that are suspicious for analysis/detection
    - Includes: Privacy, Startup, File, and Process protection

    Cons

    - Some false positives detected
    - Includes "PC Tuneup" features for maintenance and optimization

    Summary

    To summarize, Anvi Smart Defender (ASD) offers good Malware Protection. It serves as another layer of security. ASD should specialize in threat detection and removal, not PC maintenance. Works efficiently with most Antivirus programs. If you are looking for another Anti-Malware Protection system, choose ASD. I am running ASD, Baidu Antivirus 2013, KingSoft Antivirus, and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (Beta version) without conflict. Download it and try it out. A small program that is simple, yet very effective against malware threats!

    "danger warning"

    December 29, 2013   |   By ChoiceVoice

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.9.3

    Pros

    with stuff like this, there are really no pros. allegations against this company (or owner) are serious so not worth gambling with this software.

    Cons

    -seems to be spin off of iobit software? perhaps under new name to avoid malwarebytes hacking/stealing code stigma??

    -WOT gives it a bad rating and warns not to use it.

    https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/anvisoft.com?utm_source=addon&utm_content=rw-viewsc

    Summary

    WOT user comments are serious deterrent to using this.

    "Excellent Protection"

    December 12, 2013   |   By BlueJet17

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.9.3

    Pros

    I have used Anvisoft Smart Defender it works excellent. Over the last year they have upgraded it about 3 times which is excellent. It even has a registry cleaner you can use in real time while the anti virus software is scanning your computer at lightning speed. One thing I like about Anvisoft is their no nonsense approach to online protection. I also like their displays & colors of their programs, frequent upgrades & tips on facebook how to remove new threats.

    Cons

    None I can think of.

    Summary

    When ever I download their software it loads in my laptops very smooth and works as promised. Personally I like Anvisoft over other major anti virus brands. I have had issues with most majors. None so far with any Anvisoft programs I am running.

    "This is an effective anti-malware program"

    December 02, 2013   |   By j0a0m7es

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.9.3

    Pros

    This program just found some more issues. It has worked well. Only a handful of free programs are this strong. I am glad I have it.

    Cons

    None of the antivirus programs catch all of the problems

    Summary

    You most likely need this program.
