Since I will be working in the ITS next semester, its would be really handy if I have some kind of Anti-Virus (AV for short) software that I can use without installing it. Installing a new software on the computer can sometimes cause problems, and the installation and restart process can be time consuming. I remember I have seen one laptop that takes about 5 mins to restart…the amazing thing is…the owner don’t care at all! Anyway…I had a look on Neowin.net the other day and found an AV Scanner based on the Dr.Web engine. (if you are familiar with Kaspersky, you probably have heard of Dr.Web as well) Here is the description from the official website:
What is Dr.Web CureIt!?
This is a FREE anti-virus and anti-spyware utility based on Dr.Web Anti-virus scanner, which will help you quickly scan and cure, if necessary, a computer operated by MS Windows 95OSR2/ 98/Me/NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003Vista without installation of the Dr.Web Anti-virus.
Dr.Web CureIt! automatically detects the language of the OS it is installed to and sets the scanner interface accordingly (if the local language is not supported, English is enabled). The utility supports the following languages: Russian, Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Byelorussian, Czech, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, Georgian, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Latvian, Lithuanian, Persian (Farsi), Polish, Portuguese, Slovakian, Spanish, Ukrainian.
The utility contains the most up-to-date add-ons to the Dr.Web virus databases going up to twice per hour frequency at periods of high malware submissions.
