Spyware silently installs itself to your PC and then begins collecting and sending your personal and financial information back to its source. Your passwords, shopping habits, and even credit card or banking details can be compromised, resulting in identity theft, credit card fraud, and worse. In addition spyware commonly causes system conflicts and errors, and wastes valuable memory, leading to overall sluggish performance, freeze-ups, crashes, and even data loss.
iolo AntiSpyware eradicates all forms of spyware parasites, not only to protect you from internet crime, but also to reclaim valuable memory and restore overall PC performance and reliability.Complete protection. Eliminate annoying stubborn and offensive pop-up windows and other unwanted ad content, tracking mechanisms that monitor internet browsing, backdoors that enable covert control, keyloggers that can record keyboard and mouse activity, and more.
Performance-tuned through collaboration between System Shield engineers and rigorous velocity testing by iolo Labs researchers, HyperScan Technology is at the core of the revolutionary System Shield engine, designed to ensure and sustain peak PC performance while at the same time representing the next generation of comprehensive threat protection.
Sentient™ Technology Engine
Often, the most dangerous and aggressive attacks use approaches that makes them extremely difficult to identify through “signature-based” recognition techniques. Ultra-destructive bots, worms, tojans and other parasites can collaborate, morph, and disguise themselves in an attempt to outsmart known antivirus protection techniques. In these circumstances, standard security software is left defenseless as malicious programs slip through undetected because they don’t match anything in a virus definition database. To combat these fast-emerging and more cunning techniques, System Shield utilizes Sentient™ Technology, an exclusive Artificial-Intelligence heuristics engine that actively observes, learns, and adapts to unclassified malicious attacks based on behavioral analysis. With Sentient Technology, your PC stays safe from harm and infection regardless of how threats mutate or attempt to outsmart its defenses.Whole Home Licensing™ NEW
