Softpedia Editor's Review for G DATA TotalCare 2012
This is a complex security suite that comes with all the necessary tools for a total protection of your PC
Written by Mihaela Citea on January 10th, 2013
G DATA TotalCare comes with a suite of tools that work together to protect your system from any type of threats that might affect its functioning. It integrates some Internet security tools, a firewall component and an antivirus, all designed to provide a higher security level for your PC.
The well-organized interface allows easy access to all the tools, while also informing you about the security status (virus signatures, last scan date and so on), as well as the CPU load.
The application uses two integrated scan engines (heuristics and behavior blocking), which together with file cloud-based analysis make it a viable solution for protecting your system against malware infections.
You can either scan the whole system for viruses, spyware, adware, trojans, worms or select just some directories or files for scanning. Additionally, the program can check removable drives, the memory and the startup programs in order to detect infections. When a potential threat is detected, the user is prompted for action.
In order to avoid system overloading, G DATA TotalCare comes with the idle scan feature, which means that scanning begins as soon as the system enters an inactive state.
Enabling web protection makes sure that you are protected while navigating online. The application processes Internet and instant messaging content and detects phishing attempts. Of course, you can add the trusted websites to the exceptions list in order to instruct G DATA TotalCare not to block them. Moreover, the application comes with email protection and spam filters to ensure the highest protection level.
Scan scheduling, rootkit scanning, file, drive or partition backup, burning functions and the parental control component are other advantages that this application bring you. Moreover, the user can create custom rule sets for individual security levels.
If you are looking for a user-friendly, complete security solution that can protect your system without requiring a large amount of system resources, G DATA TotalCare might be a viable alternative.
