As the number of online threats is continuosly growing, computer users become aware of the importance of an effective protection solution for their system. VIRUSfighter is one of the available security applications that you can chose from, promising to watch for threats and prevent virus infections, while using low system resources.
The user-friendly interface comprises information about the last scan date, the virus definition updates (which are performed frequently, even more times a day), togerther with the total number of scans and detected infections.
The application runs discreetly in the background, using its real-time scanner to monitor accessed files, Internet downloads, e-mail attachments and automatically removing possible threats. It can be set to scan all the file types in your computer or only the ones with predefined extensions and a maximum size.
Of course, on-demand scans are also available and you can choose from two options. The ‘Quick Scan’ is fast, but the more thorough ‘Full Scan’ option is worth considering once in a while, in order to make sure that your PC is really safe. Alternatively, you can schedule a scan to run automatically.
All the detected threats are immediately send to the quarantine section due to the auto-disinfect function, but the user can create a white list for secure files.
Proxy usage, action logging and multiple language support are other features that the application provides you with. Also, it can run on game mode, which means that it can lower its system resources requirements during your gaming sessions.
Combining ease of use with its powerful real-time protection and optimized scanning engine, VIRUSfighter is an effective antidote for when an outbreak occurs. However, it is not designed to fully protect your computer against spyware or spam, thus you need other security tools for that type of coverage.
