Dr.Web CureIt! is an anti-virus scanner based on Dr.Web Scanning Engine, the standard virus scanning engine of Dr.Web products. Although Dr.Web CureIt! has limited performance capabilities in comparison with Dr.Web Anti-virus for Windows (no resident monitor, no command line scanner, no updating utility, etc.), it is nevertheless able to effectively scan the system and perform necessary actions for detected threats.
Dr.Web CureIt! is the ideal solution for situations when installation of an anti-virus is impossible due to virus activity or some other reason, because it does not require installation, operates under Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Windows Server operating systems for 32 or 64-bit platforms (from Microsoft Windows 2000 and to Microsoft Windows 8) and is constantly supplemented with the latest Dr.Web virus databases to ensure its effectiveness against all virus threats and other malicious programs. It also automatically defines the language used by your operating system.
You can use Dr.Web CureIt! free of charge to scan your personal computer. For any commercial use of Dr.Web CureIt!, however, a license is required.
