Enhanced Malware Protection blocks spyware, adware, keyloggers, and other malware. Quick Heal Total Security for Windows is the best security software for your Windows PC.

Installation And User-Friendly Interface

Installing the program is a fast and easy task since users are not prompted to exclude any components. Worth mentioning is that Quick Heal comes equipped with a personal firewall that silently runs in the background. Although not mentioned in the setup, it is automatically turned on after installation. The problem is that Windows Firewall remains enabled and it should be deactivated to prevent conflicts that will most likely lead to system stability issues.

In terms of interface, Quick Heal is wrapped in a pleasant and intuitive window that facilitates quick access to its main components. Most of them can be enabled and disabled with one click.

Benefits of Quick Heal Antivirus

Diverse scanning modes for a thorough investigation

A Full System Scan takes the entire hard disk for a spin to check it for any suspicious activity, Custom Scan allows users to select the exact areas to take into account, while Memory Scan looks only into active processes and services (quickly or thoroughly, depending on the user’s preference). Boot Time scan runs a checkup on autostart entries at system boot and, finally, Mobile Scan runs malware searches on mobile devices plugged into the PC.

Advanced scan settings and other options

The default scanner configuration may be altered when it comes to executable, archive and packed files, mailboxes of email clients, anti-spam file extensions, action on threat detection, exclusions, scan schedules, quarantine, and file backups before taking action. Settings may be restored to default.

Additional settings revolve around the real-time guard, DNAScan Technology (cloud assistance), behavior detection level, and submitting suspicious files to the developer labs for closer inspection.

Internet and privacy protection

Quick Heal Total Security features its own firewall against network attacks. It is also capable of blocking access to phishing and fraudulent websites, defending the PC against spyware, adware, keyloggers and riskware, ensuring maximum protection when surfing the web by confining all activities in a browser sandbox, as well as restricting access to specific websites and scheduling Internet access for children via a parental control module.

System optimization and maintenance

PC Tuner is a separate utility part of the whole package, which gives users the possibility of tweaking Windows and boosting its performance levels by cleaning up the disk, registry and browser traces, as well as defragmenting the registry. It includes a task scheduler and various customization options concerning each component, in addition to reports, backup and restore, plus extra tools dedicated to finding duplicate files, securely deleting data, managing autostart entries, and optimizing services.
