CNET Editors' review
SmadAV2013 provides decent antivirus protection, even if its scans take a while to finish up. It offers proactive protection in addition to some neat security features that protect your computer from onsite saboteurs. There aren't many unturned stones in the world of antivirus software, though, and this program doesn't seem to find any of them.
In addition to scanning and actively protecting your computer from viruses, SmadAV2013 can scan your registry for nasty information, but not generic errors like a true registry cleaner would. The program's installation process and license agreement seem to be written in Indonesian and you won't get a chance to change the language to English until you've completely installed the program. SmadAV2013's layout organizes all of its features into easy-to-understand tabs, but it's not very easy on the eyes. It doesn't help that there's a big ad for other developers' programs taking up a lot of space. The program's virus scan took about 40 minutes to complete, which isn't terribly fast compared to competitors. It makes up for that lack of speed by giving you a process manager that's more detailed than Windows and letting you lock any of your hard drives.
This program isn't bad AV software, but it's too late to the party to win users over the dozens of great options around it. It doesn't offer enough bonuses over the top downloads, either. SmadAV2013 just won't wow enough people to compete with avast!, Avira, or the other great security software that's widely available and easier to use for English audiences.
SmadAV is an additional antivirus software that is designed to protect your computer.
1) Additional protection for your computer, 100% compatible with other antivirus software! Works with your primary antivirus as an extra layer of defense.
2) Best USB Antivirus (Total Protection USB drives)Prevent viruses that spread through USB stick drives.
3) Best for offline use (no need to update very often) Designed to be used with computers that are rarely or not even connected to the internet. SmadAV does not need to be updated as often as other antivirus. (Regularly updates once a month).
4) Cleaner and tools to clean the virus. SmadAV not only removes viruses but can also fix registry problems in infected machine.

"Extra Protection !"
Version: SmadAV 2014 9.7.1
Fast when Windows Starting Up
Easy to use
SmadAV worked as an extra protection, protection against viruses contained in the usb stick. In Indonesia, a lot of people who use SmadAV, they combine SmadAV with Anti Virus like Avast!, Avira, and etc.. You shoud try;)
Combine SmadAV with additional free anti-virus or paid anti-virus,such as Avast!,McAfee, Avira and etc
