The AntiVirus Cleaner removes all traces of any G Data product that were not removed during an ordinary uninstall procedure. This tool might be needed to enable a complete new installation of the software. This tool does not remove any other antivirus packages other than G Data.
With this tool, G Data addresses the serious security flaw regarding shortcuts in Microsoft Windows products. The program prevents the automatic execution of malicious code upon the display of primed shortcuts. After the installation, it monitors the creation of shortcut icons. The “G Data LNK Checker” functions independently from an installed security suite and supplements it with a generic detection. Regular desktop icons with usual and harmless mechanisms are displayed as usual. But if a malicious mechanism is detected, a red warning signal icon is displayed.
Attention: A double-click on a file that “G Data LNK Checker” marked as dangerous activates the execution all the same. At this point, a good security suite is needed.
The MonActivity tool allows you to monitor the activity of the AVK-guard in the background. This can be helpful to analyse performance problems. You can e.g. run this tool in real time during "normal" activity of the computer and then try to reproduce the problem. Or you can run it for half an hour with the hitlist function and then refresh the view to see if a specific process pops up all the time. Defining an exception for a specific type of files might solve the problem in that case.
