ParetoLogic Anti-Virus PLUS certainly packs in plenty of features in addition to basic virus blocking and removal.
One of the more interesting features is what ParetoLogic refers to as cyclic detection. ParetoLogic explain this as follows, "Malware is blocked automatically depending on your Protection level or when you chose to block it after a popup alert appears. In certain instances the detected item is blocked but, due to its malicious design, it is still able to write a new entry to the registry causing another popup alert to be displayed. This pattern will repeat until a Cyclic Detection alert appears. Cyclic Detection is unique to ParetoLogic Anti-Virus PLUS. With Cyclic Detection the Block option is disabled in order to stop the detection re-occurrence. The Cyclic Detection alert warns you that your system may be infected with malware and you should run a scan to remove it."
The software's backup feature enables you to restore files that couldn't be cleaned and were deleted after being detected as potentially dangerous.
The scheduling feature lets you to program a scan to run at a particular time and date. You can also choose whether to perform a quick, full or customized scan.
ParetoLogic goes an extra mile b y providing you with an option of managing the Windows startup programs. In the Tools section of the program, you can easily disable or delete a startup programs by unchecking the box beside the program name and pressing the Delete Highlighted button, respectively.
The Active Protection screen allows you to configure many settings of the program. For example, you could set three levels of protection. You can also enable monitoring of Windows startup programs and set the monitor level to medium or high. If there is a particular website you want block access to, this can also be done. The logged events can also be read and deleted if desired.
