Decent product, but can't put a dent on Kaspersky or Zonealarm
on 5 September 2009
There are many products for PC protection. This one follows a similar suite with anti-virus, firewall and spyware etc, however it has no spam protection and no parental control and private data protection. Which is a shame as most products nowadays have these features part of the parcel.
One thing you will notice with this tool is it has a user friendly interface, looks big and bold and looks simple. I guess this tool is for basic users and advance users may want to look else where for their protection.
Another thing i find odd is that as soon as i start my pc from sleep, hibernation or even a restart it doesn't download no virus definitions as other products do, that to me is pretty worrying, a majority of products on the market by defualt start downloading the latest updates, this for some reason does it at a pre-determined time.
The spyware is pretty mediocre and I feel it doesn't do the job. I have kaspersky and kaspersky can detect pretty much everything going, this feel very short. The only thing that this product is good at is the ant-virus detection. It detected to trojans on my system. But I kept them there on purpose. Although it failed to clean one of them saying it needed to clear on next reboot. Kaspersky just deletes them. The trojans were mild so no issue and also I could manully delete them so why couldn't Iolo.
Overall, an okay product I fell is geared towards basic users. If you want full protection then stick with another product like Kaspersky, Zonealarm etc.
