The Webroot Internet Security Suite integrates technology from a number of award-winning security solutions, including Webroot AntiVirus, Spy Sweeper and Window Washer.
It is rated # 1 Internet Security Suite of 2010 by TopTenReviews.com.

With Webroot Internet Security Essentials, you can keep your PC protected without sacrificing speed. It loads and protects faster, requires less disk space, and doesn’t create confusion with an overload of unnecessary features. An easy, intuitive dashboard lets you monitor your security and take the appropriate action to stay protected.

Prominent Features:

* Award-winning antivirus, antispyware and firewall security
* Proactive protection against data theft, hackers and malware
* Streamlined design to maintain PC speed and performance
* Automatic backup to protect digital photos and irreplaceable files

I recently signed up for the beta testing program for this webroot’s new and promising product – Internet Security Complete. So far I found no issue with this at all. It’s working perfectly, real time protection is light on resources and scanning is lighting quick.

Since it is an all-in-one security suite, it offers strong firewall, anti-phishing, anti-spam, browser and email protection. It has built in system junk and spam cleaner which not only cleans quickly but also saves a lot of space taken by those hidden browser cookies and temporary files created by third party apps.

The most impressive feature of Webroot’s Internet Security Complete is that it has all the options available at one click on it’s main interface. You can initiate any process including system scan, spam or junk cleaning or anti-virus update with a right click on taskbar icon or by opening main interface without a need to open any other additional window. Settings, task scheduling, notification, and gamer mode all can be accessed in one single window with a nice slide-in effect.

But the best feature of all is it’s “Sync and Sharing“. You can sign up for the FREE 2GB online account for your documents’ backup so you can synchronize your most important folders and set them to auto synchronization mode so that whenever a new file is created or copied in those monitored folders – is automatically uploaded to your webroot’s online backup account. This synchronization process is so light on system resources that you wouldn’t notice it in the background!

A toolbar installed in your browser lets you save your history and favorite websites online so that you can keep track of them online and can access from anywhere where you have internet access. Securely edit your profile and password information for any of your protected websites. You can also save your identity by creating a master password for your identity protection which can help you in filling web forms automatically with the button from the toolbar in your browser.

Snappy: All in One Driver Installer For All Your System Drivers

Published

on

By

snappy-driver-installer

Snappy system driver installer is a freeware for Windows which is an All in One Driver Installer and can be used as a complete solution to install all types of drivers on your system. There are two main sources which are supported by the program namely driver packs and local folders. The program is capable enough to pick the drivers automatically from the folder where you kept them and bring it to use at any given time.

snappy-driver-installer

The computers who have a weak or unreliable internet connection can avail the services of this program as it can install all the drivers without it. To start installing drivers on your computer, go to the updates option which can be found on the top and download the index file by checking on the option ‘Check only needed for this PC’ and then click on accept. This index file will add all the relevant information to the software. The program then works by checking for all the missing drivers and updates for the already-installed programs on the system.

You are also free to download all the driver packs, however, which is not recommended by the experts. You only need to do this if you need to create a completely portable version of a particular program on the computer which, by default, includes all the drivers. There is one thing to note that you will have to download nearly 9 GB of data in that case.

As soon as you are done downloading, the main interface of the program will show the updated driver information afterward. You can also enable the expert mode present on your left where you will be able to use filters to customize the selected option. You are also free to disable the updates which you think are, in no way, better than the ones already installed.

Before selecting the drivers which need to be updated, hover on each device to get information about each device’s already installed driver and the update the program wants to install. The information may consist of the update’s version, device’s manufacturer’s name, hardware IDs, etc. It is quite beneficial to give some time to these facts as there may be some updates which are not suitable for the device or are falsely identified. Once you are done with all these important steps, the Snappy Driver Installer will start downloading the selected driver updates for your system, installing afterward.
