    Ease of Use

    Scan Results PC Tools Internet Suite 2011 is designed for all users irrespective of their level of technical or computing knowledge. Automatic configuration ensures that PC Tools Internet Security can be easily installed. Keep the default settings untouched and enjoy complete PC protection. This all-in-one PC security suite is your best bet for immediate and ongoing protection. If you have used Spyware Doctor before, you would not face any interface issues, as the interfaces of both these programs are almost same. Yes, additional security features, such as ThreatFire™ Behavioral Intelligence, Advanced rootkit detection technology, a new memory scanner, and the new Download Guard can be confusing. Although it appears that these extra features have been added to Spyware Doctor merely to create a security suite, one thing is sure that despite these additional features, there is no slowing down and you stay protected.

    Windows Compatibility

    Windows 7 is the officially supported operating system for this software. However, you can run it on Windows XP as well as Vista.

    Help & Support

    Phone, email, and live chat support is available for you, besides various user guides, knowledgebase, and online community forums.

    Limitations

    Though the trial version offers full protection, the threats detected during on-demand scans remain in your PC, as it does not remove them. But if you purchase the online version, you won’t face any such issues with this security suite.

    Price

    At $49.99, you have can a one-year subscription for up to 3 PCs. Considering the security it offers, I think it is worth the price. For registered users, product activation is done online and does not require a system restart. What’s more, with a 30-day refund policy, the product offers you 100% satisfaction guarantee; else you have the option to ask for refund within 30 days of the purchase.

    Is It Worth Trying?

    Rating Average

    PC Tools Internet Security is highly recommended for its exceptional anti-spyware capabilities and firewall protection. While filtering your emails for spam, IntelliGuard technology alerts only when it detects a virus, true spyware, or firewall intrusion. This ensures that no cryptic questions would interrupt you every time you install a software program, add a website to your favorites, or change your computer settings. Thus you do not fear losing your important data to viruses or any other malicious threats. Take my word on this! I hope this PC Tools Internet Suite review has helped you decide whether you should step into the world of complete PC security.
