MCShield is a simple-to-use program that allows you to protect your USB flash drives against malware, by identifying and quarantining any malicious agents. It targets all types of users, regardless of their level of experience.
Viruses and other malicious programs are easily transmitted from removable memory devices. An antivirus software is sufficient to protect your system, but it may take some time to scan the device. This is where MCShield comes in. It provides fast and powerful scanning capabilities, to prevent infections from USB sticks, memory cards and other removable devices.
The program is compatible with 32 and 64-bit editions of Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. You can install it in a matter of seconds and you don’t need to worry about any conflicts, if another antivirus program is running on your computer. Furthermore, the software’s impact on a computer’s performance is negligible.
You just need to install MCShield on your computer, to prevent infections from removable devices. The software provides real time protection against malware. When you plug in a removable drive, the program will detect and scan your device automatically. MCShield’s scanning engine is quite fast and you can adjust its behavior, on a tabbed interface.
You can choose what messages and prompts should be displayed, if an infection is detected or not, but you can also make a series of configurations to MCShield’s scanner. Depending on your settings, the software will scan hard disk drives, flash drives and memory cards, when you launch it. Additionally, you can set it to perform in-depth signature scans, reveal hidden items on flash drives, delete suspicious files and more.
Alternatively, you may select one of three presets. The software allows you to choose between default and fast protection methods or switch to bulletproof mode, which activates most defensive features. MCShield comes with its own signatures database, which can be updated automatically, every few hours. Another useful feature is the possibility of activating a gaming mode, which disables all the notifications, so they will not hinder you while playing a game.
