WiperSoft Review Details

WiperSoft is a powerful tool that can provide your computer with anti-malware protection 24/7. It has both paid and free versions so it’s up to you which one to choose. However, you should know that free version of this application can only detect but not remove the infections. It costs $39.99 for half of the year so if you have no active anti-malware tool it’s worth considering purchasing premium version of WiperSoft.

WiperSoft can detect a vast variety of malware, such as adware, browser hijackers, ransomware, trojans, malicious toolbars and so on. The best feature of this application is fast reaction to new infections – WiperSoft malware database is updated fast and regularly.

However, it seems like there is a problem with a scan engine of this tool. While we have no doubt that the database of viruses is plentiful, problems with the scan engine prevents the program to efficiently detect viruses.

Several independent researchers performed analysis of this tool and discovered that it fails to detect adware and other primitive malware, not even talking about ransomware, trojans or other serious infections. That is definitely the biggest downside of this application and you should rethink using it due to it.
