Dr.Web Antivirus for Windows is a comprehensive security product with a powerful anti-malware engine, able to protect against all kind of threats: viruses, worms, trojans, backdoors, rootkits, spyware, adwares, keyloggers, etc.

The graphic interface is minimalistic and structured into four sections: My Dr.Web, Tools, Protection Components, Scanner.

Under Tools you can find the License Manager, Support option if you encounter any issues with your product and Quarantine Manager, where you can permanently delete detected malware or restore the ones flagged as infected, but proved to be false alarms.

Under Protection components, there are three shields: SpIDer Guard, SpIDer Mail and Preventive Protection. All these provide realtime protection against malware coming from files, email attachements, etc. It uses both signatures for known viruse and also heuristics to detect suspicious files based on their format and actions.

Preventive Protection acts like a HIPS proactive component and it will monitor sensitive areas of your computer offering options to allow, block or ask for different activities: HOSTS file alteration, drivers loading, integrity of users files, low level disk access, Windows shell autorun, etc.

You can launch an on-demand scan whenever you want and there are three options for you: Express scan – checking the critical system areas of your computer, Full – complete system scan, Custom – you can specify which file or folder should be scanned.
