    "unusable - 123456789"

    January 3, 2014  |   By suhendo

    Version: Dr.Web CureIt 6.0

    Pros

    Didn't get the chance to find out -12345

    Cons

    Couldn't download a usable version 123456

    Summary

    It downloaded and immediately announced my licence had run out - lol. So that was end of story. Oh! apparently I can't enter this review as I havn't used enough characters - the world has gone mad.

    "the only antivirus that removed a trojan"

    March 22, 2013  |   By maribee

    Version: Dr.Web CureIt 6.0

    Pros

    follow installation instruction on their website: https://www.drwebhk.com/en/virus_techinfo/Trojan.Siggen2.42488.html#
    Following instruction, works well. Make sure to uninstall other virus software like Avast, AVG, Malwarebytes, etc before installing. Downloaded and run DrWeb CureIt! in a safe mode after uninstalling other virus protection on PC. Install Dr.Web Security Space pro. (demo free for 1 month)after trojan was removed.

    Cons

    Use Pro version demo, it worked

    Summary

    I had Avast, Malwarebytes Pro and others on my PC. Got a trojan.siggen2.42288 (misleading.winAvm; shazhu.wav). Chrome wouldn't work. The only antivirus Eusing utility detected the virus but couldn't remove. On internet, after searching for solution I found Dr.Web, followed instructions and in safe-mode removed 3 infected files.

    "just simply the most thorough virus finder there is."

    September 9, 2012  |   By jusboutded

    Version: Dr.Web CureIt 6.0

    Pros

    its amazing...no matter what other anti-malware i run, DR Web always finds something they did not.

    Cons

    it is long and slow, that is true. but who needs or wants a qucik and hasty check up? let DW do its thing, yes, you can stand to be offline for a few hours. let it check everything.

    Summary

    this free software has saved me several times. there is no substitute. this is the one true killer.

    "Downloads, but won't open, and run."

    June 21, 2012  |   By nosmiley

    Version: Dr.Web CureIt 6.0

    Pros

    A year or two ago this worked great.

    Cons

    Today , the free version downloads, but when I try to open and run it, it states my license has expired. I have never had one. This is, and has always been my home computer at home. I tried several methods, and can't get it to open, and run. While downloading, it states it will direct me to Facebook, blah,blah. I don't belong to facebook, and never will knowingly.
    CNET should state that Facebook is a requirement for this program.
    ( Off hand, who put Zuckerberg in charge of the internet?? )

    Summary

    At one time, this was a great program. Perhaps, I'm missing something. The last time it was free-- period. No trial, no Facebook membership, just download the program and run it. Today ,I can't get it to run. The beginning page seems to be purposely confusing.
    CNET used to be better about screening .

    "OMG! Loved Dr. Web's Cure-It!"

    January 4, 2012  |   By SputnikBites

    Version: Dr.Web CureIt 6.0

    Pros

    Very thorough. Caught several viruses missed by both Kaspersky and MalwareBytes. I search out any good stand-alone anti-malware software since it doesn't cause conflicts, doesn't slow your system, and makes a great back-up.

    Cons

    None really. The full scan takes awhile, but it's very thorough so I don't get my knickers in a kink, especially since it's free!

    Summary

    I now run Kaspersky, then Malwarebytes, then Dr. Web's Cure-It and feel very protected. For those that whine about being directed to their website, having to give their name and email address, it's a small price for software that does a thorough and excellent job. For those of you who get blue-screened or their computer gets worse--Gee, maybe they have a serious infection they should have dealt with long back or have a hardware issue. For those who can't figure out how to download it, read at least a bit of the website. It's not difficult at all.

    "Re:My Review"

    December 6, 2011  |   By SoftwareGuy

    Version: Dr.Web CureIt 6.0

    Pros

    nothing at all.

    Cons

    Gave me a blue screen of death

    Summary

    Use anything else but this. Thought all was going well until my computer rebooted and blue screened.

    "This download doesn't work, must go to their site."

    October 13, 2011  |   By Shocktribe

    Version: Dr.Web CureIt 6.0

    Pros

    After jumping through hoops, I suppose you may finally get to try it.

    Cons

    This download doesn't work, but redirects you to a website.

    Summary

    When opening this downloaded program, it merely tells you it's for private use only and opens a browser window to their website. You must then enter your email and full name to get an additional link to a free download. This is a Russian site, hence their support forum is in Russian. Never heard of them, and I didn't trust this strange setup, so I aborted the process.

    "No frills perfection"

    August 4, 2011  |   By sbdugdale

    Version: Dr.Web CureIt 6.0

    Pros

    Peace of mind in the thoroughness of the scanning
    Extremely easy to use
    The interface and actions displayed are not cloaked in IT jargon
    It's free and it works

    Cons

    You need to be patient as complete scan takes many hours

    Summary

    For a free product this is an exceptionally thorough, easy to use and re-assuring piece of software. It has rooted out an infection that AVG blantantly missed. Whilst it's shocking that popularly acclaimed AV software can fail to detect very widely dispersed trojans I am in awe that something as unpretentious and seemingly 'cheap' looking as CureIt! can detect and eradicate without me needing university level skills at IT. Some may moan that their PC is locked up during scans and that the process takes too long but they should consider the flip side of this -is what they are used to from an anti-virus product simply taking short cuts and would they rather have a clean machine or one that they are told is clear of nasties but is secretly grabbing their passwords and bandwiith. Well done to the team who made this product.

    "Good but could have been better"

    July 12, 2011  |   By MGInfinity

    Version: Dr.Web CureIt 6.0

    Pros

    1.Fast scans
    2.Deep checking
    3.Pretty fast

    Cons

    1.Long time in full system scan
    2.Interface is not very impressive

    Summary

    Drweb s a complete package for people who love light antivirus softwares. It provides enough security for basic home users.

    "Combofix has been dethroned!"

    June 1, 2011  |   By Ness246

    Version: Dr.Web CureIt 6.0

    Pros

    - Detected and removed a stubborn rootkit that combofix and tdsskiller could not.

    - Finished in less than 5 minutes with express scan

    - Would have saved hours of work if I had used this first

    Cons

    The "Complete scan" takes a long time, but I didn't need it.

    Summary

    Dr. Web CureIt! was the ONLY tool, after hours of troubleshooting, that successfully cleaned my machine of a rootkit. The entire MajorGeeks process, SUPERAntiSpyware, rootrepeal, tdsskiller, and combofix all failed to clean this infection. Only TDSSKiller and Combofix were able to detect it, but even after they "cleaned" it, the infection would return after reboot. Dr. Web CureIt! automatically started its "express scan", found, and removed the malware in less than 5 minutes. I did find that the complete scan took QUITE some time, but I was able to run this in the background after the express scan mode killed the active infection. I've been doing this for years and have never come across a utility as powerful and easy to use as this.
