To check the functionality of any antivirus, we use the EICAR (European Institute for Computer Antivirus Research) test. It's a simple, fast and safe test to check antivirus. Intego immediately detects the problem and places it into the quarantine.
To double-check, we specifically enable active protection in settings and try to download another file by EICAR. As soon as we do this, Intego immediately alerts us. Therefore, we conclude that the antivirus successfully performs its primary task - real-time virus detection.
According to the developer, Intego will protect against Windows viruses, Mac viruses, Unix viruses, Microsoft Word and Excel macro viruses, Trojan horses, worms, spyware, adware, ransomware, scareware, hacking tools, dialers and keyloggers. We’ll continue using Intego antivirus for a while longer and collect further information about this.
Now let's go through all the scan types and explore how they perform.
Intego antivirus for Windows is a decent security option for PC. It successfully passed the EICAR test and found malicious files. Although its functionality is not yet as extensive as in the MacOS version, keep in mind that the version for Windows is quite new, and more upgrades are definitely upcoming in the future.
