Likewise, it can successfully identify malware proactively, based on its behavior. The program has a friendly interface, in which the different features are organized in tabs. This helps users find their way without difficulties.

The tool supports four different types of on-demand scans. This way, it allows running a quick scan, which checks only the system’s critical areas, where virus activity can generally be found. Due to its expeditiousness, this is normally recommended for routine AV checkups. As its name suggests, a full scan examines all system areas, including disks. It has the advantage of being the most thorough; however, it can take much more time. That is why it is not supposed to be carried out very frequently. There is another type of analysis that is specifically intended to check removable storage devices. Moreover, you can also perform a custom scan, which includes the selected files or folders. Luckily, the software can provide real-time protection as well.

All in all, GridinSoft Anti-Malware is generally classified as average in terms of the quality of the AV protection it offers. One of the advantages of using this antivirus software is that its virus database is updated every hour, which makes it effective against newly created malware. Likewise, it is good that the program does not significantly affect system performance. The product is available at various prices that provide protection for different periods of time.
