Amiti Antivirus is a simple and free antivirus program for Windows. There aren't a lot of settings or options but it does monitor/scan running files automatically and supports periodic updates to its databases.

Important: Amiti Antivirus provides constant virus protection, also called on-access or resident protection, for free. This means that Amiti Antivirus can completely replace antivirus software from companies like McAfee and Norton that charge for their software and for yearly access to updates.

My Thoughts on Amiti Antivirus

As I say above, there isn't much to Amiti Antivirus, but I do like how easy it is to access the settings and options.

It's unfortunate, though, that you can't exclude certain file types from a scan, such as video or music files, like you can with Baidu Antivirus and other similar programs.

Overall, even without the settings I wish were included, Amiti Antivirus is still a solid antivirus program that fortunately can scan and update automatically to provide a good, continual defense at absolutely no cost.
