Editors' review

Defender Pro Antivirus Online Security identifies viruses and malware and takes appropriate action to protect your computer. The security scans that Defender Pro performs will quickly detect a problem program or file and quarantine it or otherwise prevent it from causing problems. It also scans Web sites for issues, so that threats can be eliminated before they even reach your computer.

Installing Defender Pro is straightforward, although it does require a restart of your computer to complete. There was also an update to install immediately upon installation. But these are completed quickly, and the interface is streamlined and intuitive. From the app dashboard, you can set up the program to scan routinely at whatever interval you prefer. You can also identify files that look suspicious but that you don't want the app to block, and you can look through the results of previous scans to see what programs and files have been identified as malware.

When Defender Pro does detect a problem, a small notification will pop up in the lower-right corner of your screen by default, although you can adjust your preferences for receiving notifications, as well. This program runs smoothly and it is free, so it's certainly worth a try if you're looking for a new way to protect your computer from viruses and malware.

    "Nice But Limited & Needs Some Work"

    February 18, 2014   |   By DontWannaKnow

    Version: Defender Pro Antivirus and Online Security 17.0.52

    Pros

    This program is very easy to use with a nice clean GUI. You can schedule virus scans daily or weekly. It automatically updates it's virus database. There were no ads except a link to upgrade. Upgrade to what, I'm not sure? The scans were not horribly slow and updates were fast. Defender Pro uses very little system resources (It's light).It has real time protection and is free!

    Cons

    It is only an antivirus. You will need a anti-spyware program to go with it.
    It has no firewall.
    It didn't always register in windows action center as active. Sometimes it did, other times it didn't.
    There isn't a whole lot of options to tweak to your preference.
    It doesn't play well with other security software I have.

    Summary

    I'm a Roboscan user and love it, but I like to experiment with others just for fun and who knows...maybe I'll find something better? That said Defender Pro is a very polished professional antivirus program. It needs a little work but nothing that keeps it from being effective. It is probably best for low traffic computers with novice to intermediate users. You can just set it, forget it and it will protect you. It is worth a try and I'm sure it will find a home on many computers.
