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.

"Trying to rise up pulling someone down...."

June 05, 2015  |  By Sergey Marchuk

2015-06-05 00:41:11  |  By Sergey Marchuk

 |  Version: Anvi Smart Defender 2.4

Pros

Anvisoft does not research on their soft.

http://www.dotfab.com/resources/how-to-remove-bonanza-pop-up-ads-and-bonanza-deals-removal-guide/

Misguidng people. pop-ups they are talking about are being spread on bonanzadeals.net/ and not on bonanzadeals.com.

Trying to rise up by pulling someone down....

Cons

Anvisoft doesn't know what they are doing

Summary

What could be good in the application they offer when they do not know what they are talking about

"If possible, I would give it zero stars for wasting my"

November 12, 2014  |  By Robert_Ta

2014-11-12 02:09:09  |  By Robert_Ta

 |  Version: Anvi Smart Defender 2.3

Pros

None. Just a complete waste of time.

Cons

Tried to delete numerous critical programs. It sees dll files as trojans. Do not download if you have Photoshop or any other programs. 3 hours to "find" 59 false positives, then I had to waste my time going over everything it "detected" to see if it was really malware or not. It didn't get a single one correct.

Summary

Absolute junk. Don't waste your time.

"Recommended."

April 30, 2014  |  By Son_of_Earth

2014-04-30 07:54:45  |  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).

2014-03-02 03:39:37  |  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

2014-01-27 10:23:55  |  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

2014-01-17 09:28:46  |  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!
