G Data AntiVirus 2012

G Data AntiVirus 2012

  • ProsGood malware detection. A wizard creates Boot CD for emergencies. After initial full scan, subsequent scans are very fast. Very good phishing protection. Blocks malicious downloads and URLs. Accurate behavior-based blocking.
  • ConsVery difficult to install on malware-infested systems. BootCD unable to disinfect many files. Full scan left behind some executable files and all non-executable traces for many detected threats.
  • Bottom LineIn my own tests and in independent lab tests, G Data has a good malware detection rate. It just doesn’t clean up found threats thoroughly. It’s a good choice to keep your new system clean, not as good if you’ve already got a malware problem.
