Extensive Pest Database Our industry-leading spyware research team monitors global Internet traffic to identify and protect you from all of the major spyware threats:
FREE Automatic Pest Updates New variations of spyware are launched every day to get past outdated anti-spyware software. This feature downloads and updates the pest database automatically to protect you against the latest spyware threats.
On-Demand & Scheduled Scanning Gives you the flexibility to scan your entire PC or select specific disks, files and folders for a custom scan. Schedule automatic scans or scan whenever you like.
Active Protection Monitors your PC in real-time to kill pests in memory and remove spyware cookies before they disclose your surfing habits to a third party.
Automated Alerts & Logs Alerts you whenever a new pest is detected, gauges its threat level and provides you with links to the pest database where you can get more information. You can define “safe lists” and “exclusion files” so that authorized applications can bypass pest detection.
