Today many data safety products are available in the market that claims to be the best, comparing their features with other software’s. But, have you ever tried judging the authenticity of their results? Have you ever tried to review the product yourself? Are you completely satisfied with your antivirus or other data safety product? If you are looking for answers to these questions, then look no further. BitDefender Total Security 2010 is the complete solution to all your data safety problems. Today, your identity is not safe over the internet and anytime your system can be attacked by a hacker. It might even be possible that your system’s security has already been compromised.
If not, then you must install BitDefender Total Security 2010 immediately. BitDefender uses an innovative technology called proactive scanning to free your system for harmful content. Other antivirus software’s execute a program in a virtual environment to scan for a threat. But, all threats can’t be uncovered in a virtual environment. Also, it is an extra overhead on memory and processing. However, BitDefender Total Security 2010 scans for threats while the program is in execution. It looks for specific signs of viruses and other threats and assigns a score based on the same. When the score reaches a given threshold, a threat warning is issued and depending on the settings, either the program is interrupted, or it is terminated.
Various signs that can be categorized as threats are:
· A program in execution waiting for a long time or no user intervention is required by a program.
· Program doesn’t show a user interface while in execution.
· Assigning an icon that is different from the usual icon. For example, an exe file icon looks like a system file icon.
· Copying files to C:\windows folder or C:\windows\System32 folder.
· Hiding itself from the task manager’s processes list.
· Creating a duplicate copy of the program.
· Trying to access the code with higher privileges
BitDefender Total Security 2010 uses an improved scanning engine to optimize the scanning speed and reduce time. It maintains 2 databases, one for files that need to be scanned after a mid-long period of time and other stores information for files that needs to be scanned frequently. Short term database contains files that have been marked as safe. Using a new module and the above technique, the scanning time has reduced by almost 30% in comparison to previous version of the software.
