Orange Defender Antivirus is intended to protect your computer against various types of malware. Luckily, this AV tool supports scanning both specific folders as well as complete drives; and not only that, it can also provide real-time protection. When minimized, the program continues to run from the system tray, from where you can easily open its main window. Its interface is quite similar to those of other products of its type, so there is little chance you may have any problems to use it.

Just like other AV software, Orange Defender Antivirus supports various modes. Thus, a quick scan can save a lot of time by analyzing vulnerable system areas only. Likewise, it can perform more accurate scans to detect threats hiding in specific folders. In this regard, it supports searching for viruses not only on your local hard disks but removable devices as well.

As to real-time protection, this program can inspect running applications and rate their safety levels according to their behavior. However, you can add safe programs to a white list to avoid their being reported as false positives. As additional features, it includes a firewall manager and allows creating virtual private networks to protect your privacy.

In the end, Orange Defender Antivirus is as good as the AV engine it uses. Fortunately, it is said to be based on Avira, one of the most reliable virus scanners. I need to say that there was an inconvenience when I tried to use the tool offline as it kept asking me to connect to the Internet so that its database could be updated, which prevented me from using the tool at all in these conditions. It is a pity that for many users $15 a month for protection may seem too much.
