The Russian anti-virus vendor Doctor Web announced the release of updated Dr.Web products for Windows. The update provides compatibility with Windows 7 and adds several improvements to Dr.Web for Windows.

The release of Windows 7 due October 22, 2009 is expected to become an event of significance for all users worldwide. Providing compatibility of Dr.Web anti-virus products with the new operating system from Microsoft aims to meet a future high demand for reliable anti-virus software for Windows 7.

In the face of the upcoming release of the new operating system Doctor Web developers had to solve a number of difficult tasks in particular to make the self-protection technologies of Dr.Web for Windows compatible with the security system of Windows 7. A lot of effort was put into perfection of Dr.Web Shield that eventually gave users a unique anti-rootkit tool. The anti-rootkit’s access subsystem no longer relies on functions provided by an operating system meaning that it won't be blocked by a rootkit Now Dr.Web anti-virus is even more efficient at performing the main function of any anti-virus – curing infections.

“New self-protection and anti-rootkit technologies created by Doctor Web programmers to counter most widely spread and dangerous malicious programs will surely be included in all Dr.Web products supporting Microsoft Windows starting with Windows 2000 as well as in our free CureIt! and the new product for curing in local networks Dr.Web CureNet! that will be released in the nearest future", general-director of Doctor Web, Boris Sharov commented.

Low system requirements, efficient curing (including curing active infections), unique detection technologies such as Origins Tracing and FLY-CODE, HTTP-monitor are among numerous features making Dr.Web solutions very popular with Windows users. All features of the Dr.Web engine 5.0 are now also available to users that will choose the new operating system.
