Defender Pro Total is an Internet security and antivirus software which protects your computer against viruses, Trojans, worms, malware, spyware and other types of malicious files[1]. Defender Pro Total was created in the United States of America, CN, by the Epartners LLC Company. This company calls itself a leader in Antivirus & Online Security for over 10 Years.

You can either download a trial version of the software or buy a full version of it on this page. This company also makes other Internet security tools.

In the words of the developers, Defender Pro Total was created for the sole purpose of providing its users the best and innovative computer protection with a user-friendly and affordable price. Defender Pro Total is very popular in the North of America and it has over one million users. This software is made for a non-experienced home user who faces computer security troubles.  

Pros Cons Verdict
Reasonable price for a good product Slow scanning performance

Quality computer security and antivirus software for a reasonable price

Doesn't slow down the computer during the scan
Works fine with another antivirus software

Defender Pro provides users with a variety of packages including Defender Pro Lifetime, which protects a single device for 5 years, Defender Pro Total, which includes the award-winning Defender Pro Antivirus and Internet Security, and Defender Pro Mac Security.

Defender Pro Total starts at $59.95 and protects PC users against various cyber threats including viruses, spyware, and hijackers. It also helps to remove old infections and prevent new ones.

Download and Installation

If you want to download Defender Pro Total, you can find the installation file on this page. The installation file package weights about 13 Mb (it varies on different versions of the software) and will be downloaded very fast.

Defender Pro Total is compatible with Windows 7, 8, and 10 operating system versions. The installation of the package is very standard and takes just a couple of seconds. Straight after the installation, the system updates itself. It took about 2 minutes to update the database of the anti-malware application.

Test Results

Antivirus protection

Defender Pro applies multi-layered malware detection defenses that start with a traditional malware scanning engine, which detects widespread malware samples and infections. In addition, heuristic monitoring searches for suspicious behaviors to help detect zero-day malware. Finally, all suspicious icons are sent to the company’s cloud-based servers for further examination.

Any of independent labs such as AV-TEST or AV-Comparatives have not tested the software, so it is unknown how the antivirus program would be ranked in bigger tests. However, as we tested Defender Pro Total for about 2 months, this is what we noticed: this software worked stable and was not affecting the speed of the computer during the scans.

Defender Pro caught some threats other anti-malware programs failed to notice.

During the testing period, we caught some malicious files from different websites while our another antivirus program didn’t react to any internet security threats. Also, we noticed that this program can operate with another antivirus software without any problems and in this way you can double your computer's chances to be safe.

Additional features

As it was mentioned before, Defender Pro offers windows users two different packages. Defender Pro Total Internet Security & Antivirus can cover up to three devices for 1 year. It protects against various types of cyber threats including virus, spyware, ransomware and I.D Theft. The package also includes Real-Time Firewall, Privacy Protection features, Private Browsing, Surf Safe and Free Customer Support.

System-performance impact

Defender Pro Total did not have any notable impact on the test computer. It did not slow it while working in the background or during scans. As it was not tested by any independent testing labs, it is hard to tell its’ system-performance impact on big tests, but according to our research, the impact on the system is minimal.

Scanning performance

The system has three types of scanning:

  • Complete scan – a complete scan of your system including active memory, and all files and directories.
  • Quick scan – a scan of critical and highest-risk areas of your system.
  • Advanced scan – a scan of the specific directories of your computer.

We performed the full scan[2] of the computer as it was recommended by another user. We noticed that the scan was going slowly compared to other similar antivirus software. But the good news was that the speed of the computer didn’t decrease during the scan.

It was a good sign of quality software. We closed the window of the Defender Pro Total and the scanning was performed in the system’s background. One annoying thing we noticed was that while the software was performing the scan, there were no possibilities to browse other system menus.

User interface

After the update of the database, the software opened the Dashboard. The interface[3] looks quite pretty and understandable. It has four main buttons: Antivirus, System Security, Real-time scanner, and history. It’s really simple, but not bad.

Feature Score
Antivirus protection Excellent
Additional features A decent set of extra security and privacy features
System-performance impact Low impact on a system while working in the background
Scanning performance Scans are longer than the market average but do not drown a system
User interface Modern looking and easy to use

Customer Reviews

We browsed the Internet for some feedback and rumors about Defender Pro Total and didn’t find anything negative. We could mention that there was some negative feedback about the Defender 5 in 1 software 7 years ago in some forums, but we think that this information is not relevant nowadays.  

The final verdict

Quality computer security and antivirus software for a reasonable price with a good-looking interface and intuitive management system.

Comparison 

Defender Pro Total and WiperSoft

As WiperSoft is not capable of protecting against bigger threats and would not be a good choice for businesses and heavy users, we recommend you Defender Pro Total which provides a decent set of security and privacy features, excellent anti-malware protection without negative impact on the system.

Defender Pro Total and SpyRemover Pro

SpyRemover Pro and Defender Pro Total are both reliable anti-malware programs with better than the average antivirus protection. Even though SpyRemover Pro provides relatively high antivirus protection rates, we would recommend you Defender Pro Total due to its even higher detection rates and a great set of additional features at a reasonable price.
