PeStudio is a free malware scanner that queries VirusTotal to identify malicious files and applications. It offers more than two dozen checks, color-coded to make them easier to find. You can also view information about imported libraries, DOS headers, certificates, and more. If your PC is at risk, you can try using compatibility mode to run older versions of the program. The official support range is Windows 7 and up.
PEStudio can also import audio functionality. This is done by identifying the files in the import address table, which lists the APIs imported from each file. This list is also known as the Import Address Table. The software will then sort these API by blacklisted and whitelisted files. This will give you a better idea of which files are prone to malware infections. Moreover, it can be used for other purposes such as reverse engineering.
Unlike many antivirus programs, PEStudio does not require installation on Windows machines. The zero-footprint and no-installation process means it works on any machine. It also runs in a sandbox without affecting the system. You can run PeStudio through command-line interface (CLI) or prompt mode to analyze executable files. In addition, you can use the batch mode mechanism to start multiple instances of PeStudio at the same time.
