Multi Virus Cleaner 2011 is a useful tool that helps you detect viruses on your PC.

A good antivirus tool is one that regularly updates its virus definitions and that can really clean deep into your PC.

With Multi Virus Cleaner 2011 you're limited just to scanning your PC. The program does offer four different ways to scan however. You can search with a quick scan, a full scan, a deep scan, or look solely in particular files with a custom scan.

Multi Virus Cleaner 2011 can be regularly updated and claims to protect you from over 5,900 viruses. There's a list of virus signatures in the updates section, but it doesn't appear to be exhaustive or to take into account the latest ones.

Multi Virus Cleaner 2011's scans were relatively lengthy and not particularly effective (it found only a small proportion of present threats in our test).

The program only gives you two options when a virus is detected: delete automatically or verify with the user what to do. The latter usually requires you to delete the virus anyway, meaning there aren't many customizable features available in Multi Virus Cleaner 2011.

You are not shown the time you spend scanning your PC with Multi Virus Cleaner 2011. You can follow the progress by seeing how many files have been scanned, as well as viewing what files the utility is working on.

PC security is not something you can fool around with, and that's why you should always try to have one of the best security suites installed.

Multi Virus Cleaner 2011 is unfortunately not a security suite. It provides basic scanning possibilities that, while useful, are not sufficient to keep your PC secure on their own.

Multi Virus Cleaner is a free, stand-alone utility used to detect and remove major viruses. It is not a substitute for full anti-virus protection, but rather a tool to assist administrators and users when cleaning infected systems.

Multi Virus Cleaner is regularly updated and can detect over 5,900 common viruses, worms, trojans and dialers (including all variants of the Sober, MyDoom and Bagle viruses).

The program boasts a fast, user-friendly scanner that requires minimal processing power and is an excellent choice for repairing a compromised system.
