Baidu Antivirus 2014 is a new antivirus product on the market and impresses by its user-friendly GUI and low system impact.
The main screen lists several options, the most used like ‚Quick Scan’, ‚Full Scan’, ‚Custom Scan’ with large buttons.
It offers protection against all kinds of threats, like worms, viruses, trojans, backdoors, rootkits, phishing, spyware, etc.
It also protects you while browsing the internet by scanning every malicious link you click. It also protects against homepage hijacking and against browser’s unauthorized modifications.
The antivirus uses three engines: from Avira, and two from Baidu itself (local + cloud).
It incorporates a Proactive Defense component as well and USB devices protection. In case it detects something malicious it will prompt you for action or you can set it for automatic actions. Very often trojans modify system registry, but Baidu protects this area of your computer from being altered by malware.
You can use it even if you’re a novice and the amount of settings are enough even for an advanced user.
