How effective is SmadAV Antivirus?
It detects my AV tester and USB viruses, however, it fails to catch some malware and rootkits which honestly confessed by its developer.
SmadAV is more on USB Drive 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.
In conclusion, 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, 1 out of (4) four, isn’t executable, that is its System Configuration Utility also known as Msconfig.
