    "Seems good but too many false positives"

    March 29, 2012  |   By nak3113

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.7

    Pros

    Fast, efficient and seems to prevent infection. Hasn't really been tested

    Cons

    Too many false positives, and keeps flagging even after I clicked to remember the answer

    Summary

    Good program if it can take care of the small irritants.

    "Very glad to use this freeware."

    March 12, 2012  |   By daleyeek

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.7

    Pros

    Thanks to your great free program. My PC was infected with a dummy rogueware, and I didn't know how to remove it, but you guys did a great job. Help my PC back to life and remove rogueware. At first, I use it only for removing bad software. But now I find that the scanning speed is quite quick, the behavior is also smarter.

    Cons

    Why not release final version, it's really good and stable enough.

    Summary

    It's easy to use, especially for new users. The scanning speed is fast, and without any conflict with my antivirus program AVG. What's attracted me is the system optimization function, which is similar to AVG. All-in-all, it's great and the most important is that it's completely free.

    Updated on Apr 16, 2012

    Recommend for downloading, it scans and detects Trojans on my computer. Thanks for this great free software.

    "Nice UI, superfast Scanning, Efficient work"

    March 5, 2012  |   By emilykissy

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.7

    Pros

    I like the layout& the interface. Shinning your eyes. It's the fastest anti-malware program I've ever used, even faster than Malwarebytes. It's optimize function is very helpful..Good work. Looking for a better, more stable version.

    Cons

    It's RC2 version, still isn't a permanent final version. The software needs more improvements, and add of new functions to become perfect.

    Summary

    Will keep coming back often as a supporter. Hope the final version will be released soon.

    "Destroyed my ASUS laptop!"

    March 3, 2012  |   By The1980

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.7

    Pros

    Realtime protection (but I found 11 verified false positives in my acer laptop).

    Cons

    Sure is a beta.
    The optimizer function is an ASUS destroyer.
    After reporting the disaster in their forum, I couldn't log in anymore. Their administrators blocked me out. Their initial moderators were also morons.

    Summary

    It functioned well in my acer laptop but destroyed my asus. F-ed it up so badly that even the safeboot mode didn't even work. No way of repairing the damage. 80gb of data lost. Just second within the optimizer ran for the first time, nothing worked ever again.

    Updated on Mar 13, 2012

    Got a e-mail from an admin. They are looking into it.

    "Looks Good, fast install, Needs work....."

    March 1, 2012  |   By ScreamingMetal

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.7

    Pros

    I downloaded it, scanned it to be sure it was clean. Install was moderately fast, 1st try, download install stuck....few seconds later, there was a missing file....it was something about the quarantine page (not good!), after install I ran it, sound a few little gremilins that was out for decoys...It found them. During reboot, it wouldn't let windows 7 start.
    After a safemode uninstall, I reloaded it agian, this time with a download from CNET.
    It downloaded alot quicker, installed alot quicker, but, missing the same file, I opted for installing it anyway, same problems. Hangs on reboot

    Cons

    It has the missing file, it hangs during startup, and needs a little work, for the newbies out there, don't mess with this until they've straightened the flaws out.
    Good basic software that needs to be tweaked. A safemode uninstall isn't hard, unless you don't know squat about computers.

    Summary

    Looks Good, has alot of potential, I was looking forward to adding it to my arsenal of great downloads from CNet, but it wasn't to be today. I hope they get it fixed soon, I like the way it looks! And Feels!

    "The next greatest antivirus/malware"

    February 28, 2012  |   By AlexanderStray

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.7

    Pros

    tested to 100 of the latest malware and spyware and found more then malwarebytes fully updated
    super light uses less then 1mb of ram and no cpu usage
    tested on Steam games and no performance lag when i do on any other antivirus
    cloud scanner for files you think my contain viruses
    optimization tab for performance boost
    free
    many guards that all work very well
    very fast scans

    Cons

    needs a few tweaks here and there but its still in bata version and still work well cant wait for it to be finished

    Summary

    If your looking for a good antivirus/malware that doesn't effect the performance of your computer this is it. I've tried every popular antivirus/malware and this is the best. This is not a virus i checked and scanned it. If you get an virus warning its because its new and not that many people use it so the antivirus will think its a virus when its not.

    It has a good performance, not frozen, and responds well to the task to which it proposes, but the most important function to an antivirus is to detect more and more viruses. please keep it updated.

    Cons

    Database does not update automatically.

    "Good program"

    February 14, 2012  |   By Rebeca3430

    Version: Anvi Smart Defender 1.7

    Pros

    I joined ASD beta test review, now the RC 2 version has already come out. I'm amazed by how fast the program grows, RC2 version is truly a great advancement of beta edition. It's faster, lighter, most importantly, more stable and accurate. I like ASD's performance, your super-fast scanning speed, attractive GUI are all reasons why I'm attracted.

    Cons

    Some important functions are missed, as browser protection. There's still a large room for improvements, keep with your incredible work Anvisoft.

    Summary



    Updated on Mar 5, 2012

    Well compatible with Windows 8. Good work.
