  • Winja

    Free Windows Website

Winja is designed to deliver the quality and capability you have come to expect from a Phrozen Software product. Of course, we paid close attention to the interface design and usability to make it comfortable and convenient to use for inexperienced users, but we also included extra features to make it a powerful tool for advanced users as well. Winja is lightweight and stable, to perform effectively and efficiently even on older computers. With Winja, you can easily scan files on your local system, scan and download files from the web, and scan running system processes. Winja’s “Extra Tools” panel also allows you to scan and monitor scheduled tasks, startup activities, and services. We specifically designed and coded the Extra Tools panel be plugin-ready, which means it can be progressively updated via our new Live Update System with any number of future functionalities. By submitting suspicious files you find with Winja to VirusTotal service, you participate in helping antivirus companies around the world keep virus definitions up to date and stay on top of digital security trends.
