    "Lightweight but powerful"

    February 11, 2013  |   By 1dustpelt

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.8

    Pros

    This program is awesome. It uses very little resources, yet it is very powerful and successfully removed the System Check virus from my computer. It has a great GUI.

    Cons

    This is a relatively new program, future versions probably be even better.

    Summary

    Great

    "Trojan Horse"

    February 11, 2013  |   By sleddog1995

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.8

    Pros

    Uninstalling it solved all the glitches and problems on my computer.

    Cons

    Disabled Yahoo mail and AVG and Malewarebytes, and several other programs, and gave many false positives of malware that didn't even exist.

    Summary

    Sorry I downloaded this wolf in sheep's clothing, but such is my experience with it.

    "Cnet rate this with 5 stars?"

    August 12, 2012  |   By stu54

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.5

    Pros

    Its free, realtime protection

    Cons

    Misses a lot, many false positives,

    Summary

    How on earth Cnet can rate this with full marks is beyond any logic.
    This product is new to market and not long out of Beta, if you Google for reviews you will find its rated as very poor by most major sites that tried it.
    It has a very high false positive rate and a very low detection rate of genuine threats.
    This can be expected to a degree as its a new product that needs more signatures and development.
    I would question any review on Cnet now as they have got this one so very wrong..

    "A definite MUST HAVE!"

    August 11, 2012  |   By ScreamingMetal

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.5

    Pros

    Its fast, light, does everything it says it does, it protects your system. Don't know about ya'll, I'd rather get one or 2 false positives then have to go out and buy another computer. This version is faster, and better.

    Cons

    Non yet, although you might have to put a couple of items in its ignore list if your running alot of wild program, but other than that perfect. I had to tell them they had a problem or 2, they fixed them quickly....
    Also, I love the cleaner thats built in. Between CCleaner and the optimize, you'll keep your system clean from unnecessary junk....

    Summary

    I'm impressed, its fast, lite on resources, the people are great, its a great product, and its for FREE!
    Support this software, its the best that has come around in a while,
