Prevx is an application that has been developed so that we can clean our computer from any malware that has been installed on it, taking into account that it does not bet on a real-time protection system but on execution by the user. In other words, this platform will be able to detect the presence of malware on your PC but not warn you at the moment it is being installed on your computer.
Apart from this first issue that somewhat limits the potential audience of this tool, we have to highlight among its strengths the fact that it keeps working in the background once we run it, almost unobtrusively. And since it consumes very few system resources, in the meantime, we can continue to browse our favorite sites, answer emails, or perform any other type of task.
What we recommend is that if you are going to install Prevx on your PC, you should take the trouble to run the service at least once a week, which will ensure that no malware will remain on your computer. Generally, this system has shown the ability to warn about dangerous elements such as malware, spyware, trojans, etc.
Continuing with some of the more exciting features and functions of Prevx, we liked the Prison system, which allows us to somehow imprison those potentially harmful contents, isolating them from causing harm. This is ideal if you want to run an antivirus that can remove them, mainly because, unfortunately, this application, in its free version, does not remove these risky contents on its own.
And how does this utility know that an element can be dangerous for the well-being of our computer? Thanks to a vast database that not only contains information about many risky contents but also feeds itself all the time with the data that the community members of the service are adding. Therefore, if new malware appears, you will also be protected against them.
Remember that for this platform to work; you need to be connected to a local network or WiFi; otherwise, it will not provide protection or allow you to run. For this reason, it is an alternative that loses some weight for those who use their computers offline for a good part of the day.
The simplicity of use of this tool makes it much more advisable to install it for the personal use of users without much knowledge than for an environment of service of several computers in a company.
Prevx's interface is undoubtedly another of the elements we should consider, as we liked it a lot since it leaves behind that somewhat obsolete design that resembles many old programs in Windows. This utility has its visual aspect, which integrates good-sized icons, colors, and many other details that make it pass with flying colors in this section.
If we have to point out the main positive aspects of Prevx or the ones we liked the most, we will have to point out elements such as the interface, which is well done and above the segment average. In addition, it is an application that is easy to use even if we have no previous experience, and the fact that we can program the analysis is another thing that we found attractive.
Of course, like all the programs we analyze, Prevx also has features that are not up to par with the software, and we believe that any platform within this segment must integrate if it wants to stand out. First, this service does not have real-time protection, so it only protects when we run it manually. And then, unfortunately, it only analyzes indicating problems but does not clean our computer.
In short, Prevx had left us feeling that its developers had missed the chance to finish rounding off an accessible, attractive, and functional application when they had an excellent base to achieve it. Anyway, if you want an app that lets you know what possible conflicts your PC may suffer, it could be a good alternative since it is free.
On the other hand, we think it's essential for users to know that there is a paid version of this application, which adds some of the vital functions we said we couldn't take advantage of, such as malware removal. The problem is that so many applications remove malware and don't charge us for doing so, so it seems complicated for anyone willing to lose money on Prevx.
