How to Protect Your AutoCAD Files from Viruses and Malware

AutoCAD is a powerful software that allows you to create and edit 2D and 3D designs. However, it can also be vulnerable to viruses and malware that can corrupt your files, slow down your performance, or even steal your data. In this article, we will show you how to protect your AutoCAD files from viruses and malware using the AutoCAD Anti-Virus Protection.exe tool.

What is AutoCAD Anti-Virus Protection.exe

AutoCAD Anti-Virus Protection.exe is a tool that scans your computer for malicious files that may affect your AutoCAD software. It collects information such as current process name and description, .exe and other files, and a list of software installed and used on your computer. It then compares them with a database of known threats and removes them if detected. It also prevents the loading of unauthorized files into your AutoCAD sessions, such as acad.vlx, logo.gif, acaddoc.lsp, acad.fas, and acad.lsp.

How to Use AutoCAD Anti-Virus Protection.exe

To use AutoCAD Anti-Virus Protection.exe, you need to download it from a trusted source. You can find it on the official Autodesk website[^1^] or on the GWBC website[^3^]. Be careful not to download it from unverified sources, as they may contain viruses themselves. Once you have downloaded it, follow these steps:

Run the AutoCAD Anti-Virus Protection.exe file as an administrator.

Select the option to scan your computer for viruses and malware.

Wait for the scan to complete and review the results.

If any threats are found, click on the option to remove them.

Restart your computer and open your AutoCAD software.

You can also use AutoCAD Anti-Virus Protection.exe to scan specific files or folders by selecting the option to browse for them. You can also schedule regular scans by selecting the option to set up a scan schedule.

How to Prevent Viruses and Malware in AutoCAD

Besides using AutoCAD Anti-Virus Protection.exe, there are other ways to prevent viruses and malware in AutoCAD. Here are some tips:

Keep your AutoCAD software updated with the latest patches and service packs from Autodesk.

Use the security settings and options available in your AutoCAD version to protect against malicious code. For example, you can use the SECURELOAD system variable to control which files are loaded into your AutoCAD session, or the TRUSTEDPATHS system variable to specify which folders are trusted for loading files. You can also use digital signatures to verify the authenticity of executable files[^1^].

Avoid opening or downloading files from unknown or suspicious sources. Always check the file extension and size before opening them.

Use a reliable antivirus software on your computer and keep it updated with the latest virus definitions.

Backup your important files regularly and store them in a safe location.


AutoCAD is a valuable tool for design professionals, but it can also be exposed to viruses and malware that can compromise its functionality and security.
