It works for the detection and removal of recent threats
Even though it is a good solution when an installed antivirus could not manage to solve the infection, some users have criticized the fact that threat updates are not automatically integrated in the program, so you have to periodically update it manually. Also, some others lament that Dr.Web CureIt! could be integrated within a web browser, but this is also not possible. Nevertheless, what has made Dr.Web CureIt! popular is the inclusion of a pirate content page blocker: understood by some as a greater degree of protection, and as an excessive Internet control by others.

Normally the work of an anti virus application is to create a real time protection for a computer but in the case of Dr.WebCure it the application is only useful after an attack and it serves to scan and eliminate the threat. Traditionally all anti viruses need to be installed in your computer or device but in this case one is able to save it in a USB portable device and in turn use the same to run the application. The application however comes with a little hitch in that the updates are not automatically processed and thus the user has to install updates manually and to many this comes as a disadvantage. This application is highly compatible with almost all known security software’s and thus can perform well with another antivirus installed in a device without crushing. The application has various unique features like the customized scan, self defence function and also it comes with multiple language options.
- The application does not require installation to use

- The application does not have automatic updates.
