System Requirements
  • Powerful Scanners

    The inbuilt GUI and Command Line scanners scan archives and packed files for possible virus threats. They also detect and remove polymorphic viruses.

    • GUI Scanner - Easily configurable from user interface (GUI). You can also configure to update Quick Heal Antivirus automatically using GUI Scanner. It can also scan files using the dumb method.
    • Command Line Scanner - Configure the feature to systematically scan for viruses and set appropriate action items using various commands. However, it is important to ensure that you have selected logical commands even in commands like 'Delete'. In case files are not repairable, they will be deleted using this combination. Therefore, it is recommended to keep a backup of your data before initiating scan.

    Real-time protection

    Real-time antivirus protection detects and automatically cleans all types of viruses, worms, backdoor, Trojans, spyware, adware, riskware, dialers, jokes, and DDOS tools.

    Online Protection

    Scans files when they are executed, accessed or closed using Quick Heal Real Time protection based on Dazuko.

    Schedule Scan

      Allows you to initiate scanning automatically at a predefined schedule. During scan, defined drives, folders, or files are scanned for viruses.

    SAMBA Sharing

      Allows you to secure the files while sharing them on the SAMBA server to prevent any kind of virus spread or infection.
