It’s similar as other anti-malware products. In short, all you have to do is to double click your downloaded SmadAV setup to start the installation process.

This 2019, Smadav made major changes on their Free version. Previously, the “Tools” and “Protect” features are accessible to Free version user. Unfortunately, since the release of SmadAV 2019 it only allows SmadAV Pro users to use that features.

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.
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.
