An Overview of PC Tools Internet Security 2009
We have entered in the century of “one-stop" shopping whereby consumers want to visit only one store, or buy only one product that can solve all of their problems. PC Tools Internet Security 2009 for Windows is a perfect example of this. It is one of the only products a consumer will need to buy to receive protection from a long list of Spyware, Viruses, or Trojans. Not only does Internet Security 2009 use an advanced system to detect intruders, it is designed with the ability to also block them. PC Tools Internet Security may well not be as well known as some competing products such as Norton Internet Security, but it's every bit as effective.
PC Tools Internet Security 2009 has been bundled with four main software capabilities. It has an Anti-Spam feature included, which is responsible for monitoring the amount of Spam that a computer receives. It will allow the user to produce a “white list" to allow only e-mails from these addresses. This feature is highly customizable!
Internet Security 2009 is also loaded with a Firewall feature. The Firewall is able to provide complete Stealth Mode protection. This Firewall is useful for anyone who is searching unfamiliar Web sites, and needs added protection. It does not only protect from viruses embedded in Web sites, but also detects Malware being installed for software applications.
Yet the best features installed with PC Tools Internet Security 2009 are its Anti-Spyware and Anti-Virus software. When installed, they are quickly able to scan the computer, and detect suspicious registry entries. Other characteristics of the Anti-Spyware software are its abilities to detect and destroy Rootkits, and prevent infection with Trojans.
