Anti-spyware software is critical to keeping your computer completely secure and functioning without any influence from any unwanted outside sources. Therefore, it is vitally important that you select the best anti-spyware software for your computer. So, what is the best anti-spyware software solution that we would recommend?
We would highly recommend F-Secure.
While maybe not the most well-known anti-spyware software solution, it certainly comes highly recommended from many security experts. With this software, it is possible to create and initiate your own custom scans, scan for any vulnerabilities or loopholes in your system that spyware may take advantage of, and start “quick” scans. The software is designed with user friendliness in mind.
What sets this software apart from the competition is that it can remove all leftovers of previously uninstalled software, which other software does not do
To allow you as much flexibility as possible, it is possible to personalize your security, as the software allows you to create allow, aswell as block lists, put files into quarantine and schedule updates. When we tested the software, we found that it didn’t consume much of the computer system’s resources while a scan was running.
While F-Secure does offer all round excellent protection, there are some aspects that can be improved. We found that the software doesn’t scan USB drives automatically on connection with your system, which I think should be done automatically. Why? Because infected external devices when connected to your computer can transfer their contents onto your system. It is important to note that the software doesn’t come with a “virtual browser” for helping you investigate suspicious websites, which could be useful, especially when you want to test a website that your children may have access too.
In terms of help, we found the service provided by F-Secure to be fairly comprehensive. Whilst it is not 24/7 like many other services, there is fairly good availability during weekdays, but support is not available at night.
All in all, F-Secure provides one of the best anti-spyware software solutions. It is able to identify any spyware that anything can throw at it. When it catches the spyware, it is sent into quarantine in order to ensure that it doesn’t interfere with the day to day running of your computer system. We found that F-Secure outperforms other anti-spyware providers in the same price bracket. The user interface is easy to understand, making using the software a breeze. If you are looking for a solution that can truly protect you, F-Secure should be your first port of call. The F-Secure software is also able to deal with any malware and “emergency” threats that may become prominent, when you complete an update. If you have any questions about F-Secure, their support agents are on hand to answer any queries you may have.
