Trend Micro RUBotted 2.0.0.1030 Beta

A small tool that runs on your computer, watching for bot related activities.
Trend Micro RUBotted is a simple security monitoring program that identifies suspicious activities associated with bots, such as ZBOT/ZeuS, KOOBFACE and WALEDAC, in order to prevent hackers and crackers from accessing your sensitive data. 

It can be easily installed and set up, even by users with less or no experience in such apps.

After a brief setup operation, Trend Micro RUBotted creates an icon in the system tray area upon deployment, so you can click it to bring up its console.

The app's GUI is based on a standard window with an uncomplicated layout. Trend Micro RUBotted automatically performs a scan job on your system for any botnet activity, but it also provides real-time protection to the computer. You can even check out log details.

However, in case bots are detected, you must install a separate application called HouseCall, in order to remove them from the system, since Trend Micro RUBotted is merely a monitoring tool. One of this program's advantages is that it seamlessly integrates into the system and supports compatibility with previously installed anti-virus systems, leaving no room for software conflicts.

The application is low-demanding when it comes to the computer's resources, since it requires only a small amount of CPU and system memory to work properly. It has a good response time, finishes a scanning job rapidly and displays notifications whenever a malicious agent is discovered. 

No error dialogs have been shown in our testing and the program did not hang or crash. Thanks to its intuitive layout and overall simplicity, Trend Micro RUBotted should please the entire audience.
