Total AV antivirus review

Total AV antivirus Slow but steady antivirus

We live in the information age, and as far as we would like to deny it, the lives of most people living in the world today revolve around technology. Most people use computers and the Internet. It is not even considered an explosion of popularity that the mobile phone has encountered. Currently, everyone is entirely dependent on their mobile phones to perform even the most straightforward transactions, such as buying groceries or getting trips. Because of this, it became necessary to protect themselves from digital attacks. This includes everything from hacking, phishing, and even espionage. TotalAV Essential Antivirus, developed by Total AV, can provide more excellent protection for your devices.

PROS

Simple interface

Colorful design

Scan is functional

It has many functions.

CONS

Installation takes some time

Additional download required

The only free virus scan is available.

Slow interface response

Hard to install

This is not a problem that I often come across, and when I come across it, I was reminded why the developers are trying to make the installation as quickly as possible. TotalAV Essential Antivirus did not take too long to install, but it was even longer than expected. Even for a few seconds, it may seem like life to an impatient user. Even more annoying is that as soon as the program was installed, additional downloads were required before launching the application. This may not seem like such a big deal, and, frankly, it is not. However, it cannot be denied that this adversely affects the user’s work.

Many features in the paid version

There are no features in TotalAV Essential Antivirus. It has many useful features that will serve to protect and enhance the security of user devices. It also has features that can help optimize their equipment. For example, this program not only scans your device for threats and malware, but also has a System Boost function in which users can choose which programs to run during startup, uninstall applications, and manage browser data. It also has a Disk Cleaner, which could compile duplicates and unwanted data from your computer. There is a web security feature in which users can browse the Internet through a VPN, firewall and ad unit. Finally, there is a Password Vault where users can store and protect their passwords.

All of these features are great and all, but unfortunately, most of them are only available in the paid version. The free version can only scan the user’s device for threats. The question of whether users should receive a paid version is controversial. The free version is almost useless, and the only way to use it is to buy the product completely.

Conclusion

One good thing about this product is that it has a beautiful design. It has a black background, and most icons have different colors as accents. It gives a playful, but not unprofessional look at it. This makes the program very enjoyable. However, the interface has some problems. Perhaps the most annoying is the slight lag in response. This is not such a big deal, but it makes the program slow and laggy. If you can afford a plan, take a picture, but be prepared for some problems.
