In this article I have some overviews of this antivirus software with license key of full Ashampoo Anti-Virus 2014 which I’ve received from Ashampoo.

Firstly, the installation very simple and easy and I think you will not encounter any obstacles during installation. You have to active your license key and real-time protection function (If you do not active this function, you can not run scanning feature).

As you see, user interface very simple and easy to use. To can, click “Analyze tab” then choose Full or Quick scan. But you cannot choose CUSTOM SCAN, the best way is right click on drive/folder/file and choose Scan with Ashamphoo Anti-Virus.

In particular, you can safety remove your portable drive (USB, express card, …) by using Removable Drives feature.

Full system scan will do:

– Scan all of your files for viruses, trojans, spyware, etc.
– Scan all of infected processes currently
– Scan infected boot sectors which load harmful code prior to the Windows startup
– Scan tracking cookies or infected cookies which may harm your privacy
– Scan registry entries…

I’ve already tried to scan full system of my PC, and I was surprising about the result:

What do you see in the photo above? I can explain: the infected files which KIS (Kaspersky Internet Security 2013) detected, Ashampoo Anti-Virus 2014 also detected! However, a lot of files which KIS “say nothing”, Ashampoo Anti-Virus 2014 detected and mark with “High risk”.

But removing these infected files took me much time

About the usage of CPU and RAM: Does Ashampoo Anti-Virus 2014 take more RAM than KIS?

Besides, there are 6 powerful tools in Ashampoo Anti-Virus 2014 for your system such as:

– File Wiper – Protect your privacy and permanently erase files and folders to render them unrecoverable for file restoration tools

– LSP Viewer – Manage Winsock-Layers and network activity

– ADS scanner – helps you to identify ADS streams on NTFS-formatted drives

– Internet cleaner – clean browser-cache, cookies, history,…

– Hostfile Checker – Scans your Windows hostfile for unwanted DNS redirects

– StartUp Turner – Manage startup programs

Choose an engine for scanning: Click “Option” (at top of screen on your right) / Scan operation/ Scan. Then you can choose only Bitdefender’s engine or both (Ashampoo+Bitdefender).

You should try and explore other features of Ashampoo Anti-Virus 2014!

Pros:

– Simple installation

– The user interface friendly and easy to use

– Strongly in scanning and detection the infected files (using a Bitdefender scan engine)

– Find infected files which KIS can not

Cons:

– Cannot scan if turn off real-time protection

– There isn’t CUSTOM SCAN feature

– Long time for removing infected files

Conclusion:

I think after reading my review you can recognize what is the strong and weak point of Ashampoo Anti-Virus 2014. There isn’t much antivirus software use Bitdefender engine, so I think this is the best KIS alternative for me right now (Because of my KIS is going to expire).
