a-squared Anti-Malware description
Protects the PC against malicious software: Trojans, Dialers, Worms, Spyware
a-squared Anti-Malware is a useful software that protects your PC from Malware-based hacker attacks.
a-squared Anti-Malware is a complementary product to antivirus software and desktop firewalls on MS Windows computers. Antivirus software specializes in detecting classic viruses. Many available products have weaknesses in detecting other malicious software (Malware) like Trojans, Dialers, Worms and Spyware (Adware). a-squared fills the gap that malware writers exploit.
Trojan Horses or Backdoors open your PC from the inside to attackers. Once a trojan is installed, someone can take full control of your computer. Most trojans are delivered via email and just previewing the email can activate the trojan. a-squared currently detects around 50,000 trojans.
Worm-Viruses are the most wide spread hazard on the internet. Worms arrive as emails with harmful attachments. If you open an attachment the worm will then copy and send itself to as many other computers as possible, damaging yours and your friend’s systems. a-squared detects worms on your PC and removes them before they can do any damage.
Dialers are small programs which reconfigure your dial-up number to a premium rate number. If you use a dial-up modem to connect to your isp you are at risk. Premium rate numbers can cost you hundreds in just a few days! a-squared detects and blocks dialers immediately when they try to dial.
Your personal data and your habits are a goldmine for some advertising companies who seek to infiltrate your computer. Often you are not aware that a spyware program has been downloaded. This software can collect personal information about you and your internet habits, change your home page and even stop you going to some websites! a-squaredremoves Spyware programs from your computer.
