In the ever-changing world of online communication, there are new threats every day, so a simple antivirus is not enough. This program allows you to scan your computer in search of potential malware. It also keeps an eye on your web activity to detect suspicious events.

The program has a neat and easy-to-use interface. After installing it, you only need to click on the Scan computer option so the program can explore your system in search of potentially damaging programs or files. Before starting, it will download any update it may need so it can detect even the most recent malware. The speed of the scan will depend on the size of your hard drive and on the speed of your processor, but in general, it has a good speed.

The program will show you the results of its scan and you can choose to clean all the detected files or select any of them that you want to keep for whatever reason.

The drawbacks I found were that, since it is permanently active, it made my Internet connection, and my system in general, slower. Some pages took a long time to open, while others didn't open at all. Also, the program is subscription-based, which means that you need to pay an annual fee to keep using the program.

You can try the shareware version for 30 days. If you like it and want to use it longer, you will need to purchase a license.
