The PC Protect app starts with a quick scan of your computer checking for malware, viruses or other security vulnerabilities after you install. This scan usually takes around 10 minutes which is quick in comparison to most products for the first scan.
The PC Protect antivirus section includes Quick Scan, Full System Scan & also real-time antivirus. Quick Scan & System Scan are good to use when you first install depending on how much time you have, once you have real-time activated you will unlikely need to run scans as it will automatically flag any threats.
An interesting feature on PC Protect is their two-way advanced firewall manager, a lot of Antivirus products stopped offering these features as they found it hard to keep up with constant Windows updates, however PC Protect have gone through the effort of keeping their customers supported with Firewall, a vital security feature for PC users.
- Advanced 2-Way Firewall
- Offers free video tutorials to all customers
- Device Manager to manage devices and threats
- Secure Browsing VPN
We continue to believe PC Protect will continue to add to their excellent feature set, they have announced the launch of a security tool bar this month and have said it will be given free to all customers that have active paid accounts on launch date.
