Dr.WEB CureIt is a utility designed to search for and cure personal computers running Windows operating systems. The program is a great solution for users who do not use full-fledged versions of anti-viruses. This utility can also be used when you already have software on your personal computer that protects against malware and hacking threats.
In this case a small utility like Dr WEB CureIt can serve as an additional tool.
What Dr.WEB CureIt can do
This utility can instantly detect viruses, Trojan horses and worms of various modifications.
In the settings, the user can specify the necessary parameters for checking. For example, the user can select the hard drive partition to be scanned as well as the actions that will be applied to the detected viruses.
All the threats that the utility detects are distributed in a list in the working area of this application. Then all the threats detected by the utility are divided into special directories where key loggers, dialers, hacking applications, and other suspicious files are detected.
Using this utility as a full-fledged anti-virus is not an option. Since Dr.WEB CureIt does not provide real-time protection for your computer, in other words, when you visit different websites, work with your email or install new software, it cannot provide full-fledged protection since it can only disinfect and remove programs that are already infected.
This utility does not have an automatic antivirus database update module, so you will need to download the utility from the official website again in order to use the latest version for scanning.
Also, you should not use a utility with an outdated database for a long time, because new viruses appear every minute. Therefore, the version with outdated databases may not be able to detect a new threat, which will definitely lead to unpleasant consequences.
By the way, Dr.WEB CureIt databases are updated almost every two hours, and the tool you downloaded yesterday may become outdated today.
Dr.WEB CureIt does not need to be installed on the hard drive of your PC, so it can be run from disk or flash drive, which is quite convenient when unlocking a PC infected with malware.
