Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus
Malware protection should be paramount for anyone, especially given the abundance of threats that roam all over the Internet. A fast and accurate antivirus solution, coupled with a firewall should do the trick for most users and there are quite a few options you can go for.
Among the cloud-based solutions that seem to gain more and more ground nowadays, Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus aims to offer the best protection and the most efficient resource usage by using advanced technology end-to-end.
Through a user-friendly interface, you can access a variety of functions that are made to work together and make sure the computer stays protected at all times. There are several components especially designed for the protection of your system, namely the realtime and web shields, alongside the firewall that is built-in Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus.
There is also a powerful 'Identity Protection' module that will keep your personal information private and safe from phishing attempts. Thus, the content of the clipboard is shielded, as is the browsing data, as well as the browser components and cookies.
An interesting feature of Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus is the ability to take care of specific applications you designate and which may be handling personal info. Also, some programs can be either blocked from accessing and propagating such private data or allowed to process the information as they see fit (you should use this strictly for trusted apps).
The set of antimalware tools that this software comes with can help in the removal of some infections that may have crawled into your PC. Besides the 'Manual Threat Removal' utility that helps you clean any file and the registry entries that came with it, you can reset the system policies to their default values, as well as the desktop wallpaper and the screensaver.
A neat function of Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus is the 'SafeStart Sandbox' that will make it possible for you to run any program that may seem suspicious in a virtual environment to check if it tries to make unauthorized modifications to the computer.
Thanks to the many customizable features it packs, Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus manages to put up a good performance, even if it is limited by Internet connectivity which is needed in order to perform the scans, since this is a cloud-based solution.
