Dr.Web Light is a reliable Mac program that will help you protect your system against various threats. This tool can come in handy if you want to keep you system safe at all times by using advanced virus detection and neutralization techniques.

You know, Dr.Web Light is a powerful anti-virus tool for your Mac and it is very easy to use. The friendly and well-organized graphical interface that this application comes with will help you scan your system or specific files (you can drag-and-drop the desired files directly to the interface for scanning) in no time and with very little effort.

In addition to the possibility to scan any desired file, Dr.Web Light allows you to perform an "Express Scan" and a "Full Scan" which you can pause at any time. This can prove to be quite useful, especially if your Mac is running low on battery and you don't want to start the scanning process all over again at a later time. You can simply pause it and continue the scan once your battery is charged.

Dr.Web Light puts various types of actions at your disposal if a threat is detected. You can even set individual actions (cure, move to quarantine, delete, etc.) for each type of threat (infected, not cured, suspicious, adware, riskware, etc.) in a very simple manner. Furthermore, when performing a full system scan, you can easily add files and folders to an exclusion list in order to skip them during the process.

Keep in mind that Dr.Web Light might find "false positives" during the scan, therefore, it is recommended that you double-check the file before deleting it.

Finally, if you are ever in need of a reliable and easy-to-use Mac application that will help you protect your system against various threats, then Dr.Web Light is a good choice.
