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.

"S**t AV! Never trusted!"

July 22, 2015  |  By John Jani Janardan

2015-07-22 07:18:06  |  By John Jani Janardan

 |  Version: SmadAV 2014 10.2.5

Pros

Nothing! This is s**t AV! Never trust this s**t AV or you'll sorry for your rest of life!

Cons

Check my USB FD with this AV and finds thousand viruses! But AVG IS 2015, Avast 2015 and Ad-Aware AV all with latest virus database find nothing! Guess all findings of Smadav is false positive!

Summary

Never trust this AV or you'll feel sorry for your rest of life!

2014-08-02 17:44:15  |  By ChoiceVoice

 |  Version: SmadAV 2014 9.7.1

Pros

none that i can see. for all i know, some guy in a garage made this.

Cons

-rarely updates.
-unknown company to trust your computer to.
-never tested in independent antivirus testing labs: meaning it would likely fail miserly.

Summary

there are better second lines of defense out there (for free).

"Extra Protection !"

March 19, 2014  |  By muhfudi

2014-03-19 16:34:10  |  By muhfudi

 |  Version: SmadAV 2014 9.7.1

Pros

Fast when Windows Starting Up
Light Size
Easy to use

Cons

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;)

Summary

Combine SmadAV with additional free anti-virus or paid anti-virus,such as Avast!,McAfee, Avira and etc

"This program just saved my day!"

January 02, 2014  |  By wakeuprockyman

2014-01-02 15:29:43  |  By wakeuprockyman

 |  Version: SmadAV 2013 9.5

Pros

All the other antivirus I tried to download through the internet were imediately block off by some very nasty virus, even the ones I had installed were promptly wipped out! But this incredible program managed to get through the virus, install itself, and, on the emergency mode of my Windows, cleaned the virus finally out!

Cons

Need to put in english mode only after you download it, but maybe thats just what tricked out the virus... I think it doesnt speak Malaysian...fortunately

Summary

Great resource if youre in trouble with a very nasty bug!

"Recommended Antivirus for Offline use"

December 31, 2013  |  By jcmanuel95

2013-12-31 00:18:00  |  By jcmanuel95

 |  Version: SmadAV 2013 9.5

Pros

This antivirus came from Indonesian where most of the known viruses originated. I was shocked when the first time I saw it, its size was only less than 1mb. I'm not well convinced at first. I came from Philippines and when I try it with my desktop which doesn't have an internet connection, my PC is 100% virus-free.

Here's the list of Pros:
1) Additional protection for your computer, 100% compatible with other antivirus.
2) Best USB Antivirus (Total Protection USB stick)
3) Best for offline use (no need to update too often)
4) Cleaner and tools to clean the virus

Cons

The only Con of this Antivirus is its Interface, it needs to be improved.

Summary

The BEST ANTIVIRUS + USB PROTECTION for OFFLINE use.

Updated on Dec 31, 2013

Smadav's SMAD-LOCK is the solution for the SHORTCUT VIRUS spread in the FLASH DRIVE. try it :)
