How to install SmadAV?
It’s the same as other anti-malware products. However, if you are not familiar with Indonesian language you must choose the English when prompted. To make the installation wizard English. Then, at the end of installation you will be prompted again to select the language you like, this will affect the SmadAV Interface, in my case I selected the English.

In this tab, you can do a manual scan in different modes. You can execute SmadAV Antivirus scanner to quick scan, full scan, scan only the system area and deep scan the system area. The SmadAV current report is also located here, from where you can see your scan reports and have it fixed.
In this area also, you can see what type of virus affecting your computer, your registry path and hidden files. Each results offers an option to clean, repair and unhide respectively.

SmadAV Antivirus Tools
If you think this small anti-malware is limited with only few tools? You are wrong. The tools tab, is equipped with so many options and settings that’s very useful in removing virus in case your PC gets infected. It has its own Process Manager, System Editor, WinForce, Smadlock.
Process Manager, is like your taskbar processes. This is helpful when virus prevents you from opening your taskbar which is always the case.
System Editor, this where you can Enable/Disable and Show/Hide System Applications, Windows Explorer and Start Menu.
SmadAV Antivirus WinForce, from the word force, this is designed to forcibly open Task Manager, Command Prompt, RegEdit and Msconfig when necessary.
Smad-Lock, it’s where you lock and unlock your hard drive. It’s not literally lock your hard disk rather it creates a folder wherein you can save your files to prevent viruses from infecting it.
In this tab, you can see the SmadAV Antivirus Basic Settings, Advance Settings (for Pro version only) and the language settings.
Advantages of SmadAV Pro
- Automatic Update
- Exception List
- Minimize/Maximize Interface
- Change Theme Colors
- Profit Use
- Admin Password
Is it worth to go for SmadAV Pro Version? The free version is good enough, but if you are looking for better features like auto-update, exception list and admin password then $4 is worth it.
How effective is SmadAV Antivirus?
It detects my AV tester and USB viruses, however it fails to catch some malware and rootkits which honestly confess by its developer. SmadAV is more on USB protector, aims to protect your PC and portable devices from autorun virus, thus prevent all known worms and trojans from multiplying or infecting your computer devices.
As I tested all SmadAV Antivirus tools and its functionalities, it’s all doing its job as intended. The only failure I encounter is from its Win-Force, out of (4) four, 1 isn’t executable, that is its System Configuration Utility also known as Msconfig.
