herdProtect Anti-Malware Scanner is a powerful malware scanning utility that can detect and remove all kinds of malicious threats from your system, including spyware, Trojans, worms, rootkits, and so on. It’s a reliable malware protection program that can be used next to already-installed antivirus programs without any conflict or similar problems.

The most important advantages of the scanner are its accuracy and reliability.
It makes use of a cloud-based scanning technique and analyzes your system using 68 different anti-malware engines. Therefore, the chances of malware to escape the scanning are reduced to a minimum. Furthermore, multiple engines and scoring algorithms ensure that the risk to to deal with false-positives is also decreased considerably. Being a cloud-based malware detection tool, it’s lightweight and has no remarkable impact over your system resources when running.

The scanning speed of herdProtect Anti-Malware Scanner is pretty decent, especially due to the fact that it has to upload snapshots of scanned active files to the online cloud-based detection engine and download analysis reports. It's easy to remove detected items, even multiple ones at once.

The only downside of this handy tool is that it doesn’t provide real-time protection against new malware infections. It can only perform on-demand scans. Anyway, considering the high level of accuracy that it provides and the fact that it’s also a free tool, herdProtect Anti-Malware Scanner is still fully worth being tried and it gets my strong recommendation.

  • Free.
  • Easy-to-use.


  • No real-time protection.

    Very good freeware. It found a bot, PC Cleaner, that MalwareBytes did not.
    Beta version worked without a glitch on my Windows 7 64 bit OS.
