There are so many types of computer viruses nowadays that one antivirus program may not suffice to remove all of them, even the premium ones. However, SkyShield is a free antivirus that provides protection against different viruses from various sources.

SkyShield Features"

  • PC protection
  • Download shield
  • USB protection
  • Email shield
  • Toolbar shield

Using SkyShield

Installing SkyShield is easy and takes a short time, and you can install it on any Windows operating system from XP onwards.

The simple interface displays all the available shields with the options to turn them either on or off using responsive sliders. If you want to enable or disable all shields simultaneously, then use the slider on the right side of the interface. The interface also provides the option to scan either the whole computer or selected files.

We found it quite easy to choose any option we wanted on the uncluttered display. Providing features like e-mail and download protection is especially important in the current Internet world where downloads and e-mail messages, particularly attachments, tend to hide viruses.

Another common mode of spreading viruses is the use of USB drives, which usually contain malicious autorun applications that infect computers when affected pen drives are inserted. This is another area that the antivirus scans and shields from such applications.

The antivirus scanned all our downloads and blocked malicious applications, and it did the same with every e-mail we received during our test. Some malicious programs silently change browser settings and even take complete control of favorite browsers. This is another area where SkyShield comes in handy to prevent such processes.

The antivirus displayed a progress bar during the scanning process and the corresponding percentage completed.

Conclusion

If you want a simple antivirus that will give you all-rounded protection, then SkyShield is your ideal choice. The self-updating program is user friendly and effective, giving your computer complete security against malicious programs. However, you will be slightly disappointed if you like to tweak the way your programs work because the free antivirus does not offer settings to customize it.
