"It's great for a backup scanner"

March 31, 2012  |  By Chocoboblue99

 |  Version: ClamXav 2.2.4


Low CPU usages

Fast scans

update protection

Simple Interface


No Real Time protection

Freezes, but only if you want to scan 2 times.

No user manual


This is a basic virus scanner. It's doesn't offer real time protection, but you can scan whatever you like, locations or files. I don't like that it does freezes if you scan two different locations. The way I avoid this, is by turning the program off and on again for the next scan. The scanning time is really fast though.
