The GUI-based scanner in Dr.Web products for Windows updated

August 16, 2010

Doctor Web updated the GUI scanner included into Dr.Web personal and server anti-virus products for Windows, Dr.Web Enterprise Suite and the Internet-service Dr.Web AV-Desk 5.0.

The scanner can now notify a user that he needs to scan the system in seven days after an express scan has been done. The scanner launch time becomes shorter if it has been launched earlier. These improvements contribute to more reliable anti-virus protection of computers.

The update also provides the anti-viruses with a completely reworked routine for curing active infections – now the anti-virus neutralizes infections without making changes to the system that might make it more vulnerable. It also improves security of a system protected by Dr.Web.

Some minor GUI issues have also been resolved and errors have been fixed. Operation of the scanner incorporated in Dr.Web Enterprise Suite and Dr.Web AV-Desk in the safe mode of Windows has been improved.

The update will be automatically downloaded by the anti-viruses.
