Dr. Web CureIt! is antivirus software designed, as the name suggests, to cure your system of issues and malware/viruses which you may have become infected with. Whether its spyware or viruses, Dr. Web CureIt! promises to repair your computer.
CureIt comes with a few different options for scanning. They are generally wizard-assisted operations and include "Express", "Complete" and "Custom". They all do as implied by the labelling and Custom scanning gives the user full control over what exactly the antivirus scanning will look for and repair.
The express mode isn't as comprehensive, obviously, as the other modes. It will scan RAM, boot sectors, startup programs and services, recovery, the main Windows installation drive and the temporary files used by the Windows system.
Dr. Web CureIt! does not have the best user interface and it could use some work in that department. It also doesn't seem to be quite as fast as some of the other software we've reviewed and therefore could use some work in that aspect.
One last thing to mention is that if you're using the free, non-paid version of Dr. Web's Antivirus tool, you're forced by their terms of service to send back data about your system so for those interested in maintaining the highest level of privacy online, you might want to think twice before using this version.
