Baidu Antivirus Pro free

technologyEdward KiledjianComment

Baidu is China’s response to Google and they have just launched a free antivirus solution called Baidu Antivirus 2013. In my tests, it was light, easy to use and fast anti-virus. They promise to protect you from malware, viruses, spyware and adware. I tested it against some more common malicious code and it seems to catch and clean the system. Although we haven’t seen any independent tests yet, I expect them to be as good or better than many of the traditional free products but not as good as the stronger for pay products.

Before anyone asks the question, it does come in English and the English version is very good.

You can download it here.

Considering this is Chinese, I have to urge caution if you chose to use it. I tested it on a sandboxed virtual machine and I would never install this on any of my personal computers.
