The Total Defense software development team is dedicated to making the most effective antivirus programs around, but does their newest program, Total Defense Anti-Virus R12, really deliver? This company makes many similar protection programs, and Anti-Virus R12 happens to be their weakest program, making it unsuitable for IT teams or businesses. However, when it comes to the consumer market, which has the lowest percentage of serious virus attacks, does this program have enough features to keep you safe? This review will go through all the features of this program, and it will also cover how easy it is to use and the customer support. If this is not enough for your needs, then you can look into Total Defense’s other programs, which do offer more comprehensive protection.

Features of Total Defense Anti-Virus R12

There are two main features to Total Defense Anti-Virus R12 that it excels at. One is virus removal, which is effective at removing spyware, worms, Trojans and other forms of malware, while providing you with virus protection. According to lab tests, Anti-Virus R12 achieved satisfactory scores for malware removal. The other tool is a vulnerability assessment that will check through your computer to find any malware attacking the software, which has been proven to work rather well.

Ease of Use of Total Defense Anti-Virus

While Total Defense Anti-Virus R12 may not have the most features, it is very simple to use. Like most other antivirus software, this will run automatically, though you can initiate manual scans. For the most part, this program will run on its own without any interaction. If you aren’t versed in command line coding or the more technical side of virus protection, this will be perfect.

Customer Support Quality

The Total Defense team has your back 24/7, 365 days of the year. They have live customer support that will be able to help with any problems you encounter, regardless of when the problem strikes. That being said, the customer support quality is satisfactory to good, and the representatives should be able to easily answer most basic questions within a few seconds.

Main Advantages of Total Defense Anti-Virus

While Total Defense Anti-Virus is not heavy on features, it has the main ones that most consumers need. If you are looking for budget-friendly virus protection, this software provides it. The other big advantage is that this program is fairly simple to use, and it should only take a few minutes to learn the main tools and features. If you just need basic protection, then this program delivers. If not, then look into one of Total Defense’s other products.

    when this software works … it does an ok job, though with a scan there will be things that real time components miss, let alone if scanned with another utility.. the majority of the time the product will not update definitions from the server, though you can manually install them… good luck deploying over the network as well. though the product claims to be able to do so it is very touch and go

      Hi John,

      If your Total Defense deployment is not updating definitions, it means you didn’t install it properly.
      Please contact me if you need help to understand the logic behind the product. I’ve been supporting the product for almost 2 years providing technical assistance to system administrators of huge networks.
      The product is quite complex but, when you deeply know how it works, it can give you excellent results.

      Regards,
      Mike

    What do you mean by basic protection? The Internet Security Suite has all in one (Antimalware, HIPS, Firewall, Web protection). Did you try
    Total Defense ISS?

    Another thing that is quite confusing in your article: Total Defense R12 endpoint protection is not a consumer product, it’s a business product.
    This is what you should test for the consumer market:
