Spyware Antivirus 2009 incorporates several new technologies that will help your computer be more safe. One of Spyware Antivirus's key features is its always on scanning technology. If your visiting a website or receiving an instant message, all of the incoming data will be checked for malicious software and or malicious intentions. This scanning technology is often found in corporate antivirus. In contrast, most regular pc antivirus software will only scan files that are already downloaded on to your computer.
Spyware Internet Security 2009 is a security suite that lets you use the Internet with complete peace of mind. It protects you from viruses, spyware, rootkits, hackers, online fraud, identity theft and all other Internet threats. The anti-spam engine will keep your inbox free from junk mail while the Parental Control feature ensures your children can use the Web safely. And thanks to the new Collective Intelligence technology, the solution is now much faster than previous versions.
The Spyware Review
In this review, I basically took five (5) of the top Anti-spyware and adware removal tools on the market and compared them in my lab. The products I reviewed were Paretologic’s XoftSpy, Max Secure Software’s Spyware Detector, NoAdware, Spyware Nuker, and Adware Alert.
Spyware review consisted of standard Windows workstations that I intentionally infected with spyware, adware, and malware. WOW! These things got infected fast. I think the first machine had multiple variants in less than 30 minutes of the first infection…Now I’m feeling your pain.
A firewall will detect these malicious programs installation and prevent them from communicating to the hacker who might want to control your PC. Free Zone Alarm is probably the easiest most established firewall software to use. Another great firewall is Comodo Free personal firewall. The company is fairly new in the firewall software scene. However, the software has won PC Magazine's editor choice. I have seen the software recommended all over the web. I would definitely also give it a look.
Antivirus & Firewalls
Anti Spyware has been around for years, keeping PCs safe from browser hijackers, adware, keyloggers and more. But recently PC Tools have taken the program even further by adding a powerful antivirus engine, ensuring it can handle the full range of threats that you might find online. If you need a version without the antivirus module, we also have the full and current Spyware 6 Starter Edition available to download.
It's also possible to run the more thorough Full Scan, though, or you might choose the Custom Scan to search specific locations only. These can take much longer, but there's always the Scheduler, which can be set up to run scans automatically when you're not around. You could set up the Scheduler to perform a full system scan at the end of every working week or weekend.
Move to the regular commercial edition of PC Tools Spyware with AntiVirus and you'll gain an extensive range of real-time protection features. Like Browser Guard, which prevents malware from changing your favourites, toolbars, add-ons and more. Network Guard stops threats from hijacking your network connection, Process Guard blocks malicious hidden processes like rootkits, and Cookie Guard deletes tracking cookies automatically.
