Baidu Antivirus Free Download

For those who care about origins of things, the name ‘Baidu” which means ‘Hundreds of Times’, is inspired by an 800 year old poem. Robin Li named the company after the Baidu poem that symbolizes constant and persistent search for ideal. May be the main window of the program is also inspired by that song, with its blue background as the sky and clouds, showing only some buttons and the animated indicator of the security status. It is not the only skin though, there are some other themes including holiday and science fictions themes.

Baidu Antivirus License comes from Avira but unlike Ashampoo Antivirus it has its own antivirus engine. Baidu uses Avira’s engine in scanning viruses only but not in real-time protection mode.

This program has not passed many protection tests, yet in the results found for its protection evaluation, it has done well in straightforward file detection, plus detection and blocking malware.  But this is not enough especially it was notorious for false detection of malware.

Shortcomings

  • Baidu Antivirus is slow in scanning files.
  • Poor performance when scanning and detecting malware while being downloaded.
  • Baidu Antivirus is unreliable in phishing for its poor performance in this area.
  • Baidu Antivirus dialogues use a very advanced and complicated language that might not suits the ordinary users, for example the Network Traffic Tool that measures the traffic in the network for instance.
  • Baidu Antivirus starts attacking the malware directly after launching it, not before.

2015 version of Baidu has included many updates and improvements, but there is no marked ones on the area of malware download, or phishing detection. Having a better version in 2015 is not enough, so we do not recommend such program as a sole defender from viruses, malware, and phishing.
