Blade Virus Scanner is a simple and straightforward antivirus system which focuses on identifying and eliminating Indonesia local viruses but also foreign ones. It packs other interesting features as well, catering to all types of users.
This is a portable tool, so installing Blade Virus Scanner is not a requirement. You can just drop the program files anywhere on the hard drive and run the executable directly.
Otherwise, the app can be moved to a USB flash drive or similar device, from where you can run it on any workstation with minimum effort. It’s important to keep in mind that Windows Registry is not updated with new entries, and leftovers are not kept on the hard disk after removal.
The interface of the application is made from a regular window with a plain layout. Blade Virus Scanner doesn’t excel in the visual department of the GUI, but its options are well-organized into multiple tabs.
In order to perform a scan, all you have to do is specify the target directory. The tool shows a progress bar along with total files, detected viruses, elapsed time and currently scanned file.
When threats are found you can check out the name, location, size and additional information for each file. From this point on, you can either delete the infected items or send them to quarantine. However, it’s not possible to select a particular action for individual files.
Blade Virus Scanner bundles a few tools useful for monitoring the system and ensuring its security: you can view the memory status (total, unused and residual RAM and virtual memory), system information (username, Windows and system directories) and drive details (size, used and free space).
Plus, you can get the serial of your HDD, view active processes, encrypt files, explore directories, and remove the autorun.inf file from drives.
It is possible to view the virus definitions, change the background color, mark a suspicious application as infected, as well as to access Windows tools (e.g. Command Prompt, Task Manager, Disk Clean Up, Registry Editor, Disk Defragmenter).
The application is very light on the system resources, thus it doesn’t interrupt user activity throughout the scan process. It has a good response time and carries out a scan rapidly. No error dialogs have been shown in our tests, and the app did not hang or crash. Unfortunately, Blade Virus Scanner has not been updated for a while.
