A software which detects spyware, trojans, worms, spoofers, droppers, probe tools, mail bombers,etc
This utility detects and removes spyware, worms, trojans, droppers, probe tools, and many others. The application's interface is easy to navigate through, for both rookies and power users.
Scanning options include a standard scan (quickly scans locations where malicious agents typically hide), and a custom scan (performs the standard scan but in addition it will scan the partitions and folders you have selected).
The standard scan also analyzes the computer's memory and cookies, as well as registry entries. Additionally, a scan history shows the last time and date when PestPatrol performed a scan, as well as the number of previously detected pests and items.
Our tests could only be made on the standard scan, but even so we found that PestPatrol finishes the job extremely fast, and offers users the possibility to exclude or quarantine any threat it identifies.
In Advanced Settings you can configure the update options, prevalence options and sounds, as well as manage quarantined pests (they can be either deleted or restored), excluded pests and log settings.
To conclude, it's safe to say that this software provides a welcomed supplemental layer of security to your system. PestPatrol is very easy to use and configure so it is most suitable for less experienced and expert users alike.
