VirusBarrier Scanner is a system protection tool that helps you identify and remove viruses, worms, Trojan horses, adware, spyware, hacking programs, keyloggers, and other types of malware apps. The utility supports scanning both internal and external mounted drives, either automatically on a daily basis or on-demand when the situation requires it.

The application comes with a clear-cut and intuitive user interface that allows you to manage all functions with ease. VirusBarrier Scanner provides two handy scan modes. Therefore, you have the chance to either enable a manual scan of a selected drive or configure settings for a recurrent daily scan. The Preferences menu lets you determine custom scan rules suited to your needs. This way, you can ask the program to scan only new and modified files. In addition, you can set exclusion rules by naming trusted files and folders on which the scan shouldn't be performed. For system resource preservation, the scan operation can be performed with low priority, so other apps can run faster. However, you need to be aware that this mode may increase the scan times.

All the above-mentioned features make VirusBarrier Scanner a reliable tool for home computer security. With the Daily scan mode enabled, you can enjoy working on your Mac in a malware-protected environment.
