Watchdog Anti-Malware is a security solution for Windows. It provides protection against the many threats that can put your data at risk: adware, Trojans, viruses, and all type of malicious applications.

What makes Watchdog Anti-Malware powerful is its cloud-based, multiple-engine scanning platform, which checks files with numerous anti-virus solutions to ensure an effective and accurate detection of threats.

Watchdog Anti-Malware has an easy-to-use interface that is simplified and straightforward. You can schedule Deep scans at a time that works best for you, or you can run a Smart scan immediately. Thorough scans can take hours to complete (depending on your hard drive capacity), and any files that are considered suspicious or a known threat will be flagged. These files can be deleted or moved to the quarantine. There is also a TXT file produced after each scan which gives you a breakdown of the files scanned, the time taken, and any malicious files found.

Additionally, the program runs in the background and monitors your PC in real time. If there is anything that looks suspicious or potentially harmful, it will provide you with an alert and will prevent dubious files from being executed. You can disable this real-time protection if you want, so that you are only protected when you schedule scans.

In short, Watchdog Anti-Malware is an efficient and effective anti-malware solution. It is an excellent tool to use along with an anti-virus program, or on its own, to ensure that your computer is protected from dangerous files.
