GridinSoft Anti-Malware is a typical anti-malware solution that will both scan your system for existing infections and protect it against potential future ones. Mind that the real-time protection feature is available only for those who purchase the full version of the application.
Compared to other similar anti-malware products, GridinSoft Anti-Malware managed to impress me during the testing by detecting a rather large number of potential adware, Trojans, and other malware components. As far as I can tell, none of them were false positives. Though it's not a very popular product on the market, GridinSoft Anti-Malware started looking pretty reliable to me and I actually started considering using it on a constant basis. But then, when I attempted to delete or move the detected issues to quarantine, GridinSoft Anti-Malware asked me to registered for a full, paid version first. I was already a bit disappointed by the fact that the real-time protection function is not available in the free trial version, but now I got plain disheartened, seeing that I cannot clean the detected infections even once in the trial version.
Anyway, for those willing to pay for a full version, GridinSoft Anti-Malware is a great anti-malware tool. It's also easy-to-use and packed with handy additional features such as the function that resets your web browsers settings to the default state or scan scheduling.
