Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.0 - a great addition to the Windows-antivirus

Safer-Networking company officially introduced the new version of its unusual antivirus product called Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.0. 

With this release, developers have presented a number of interesting new features, but most of them are familiar to users of the beta version and the earlier announcements of the manufacturer.

Today, the vast majority of Windows users have at least some anti-virus, whether the package Microsoft Security Essentials, Windows Defender, McAfee, Norton, or any free anti-virus software from reputable manufacturers. At the same time, any such program can not be considered perfect. There is always another spyware, rootkit or a virus that is not ranked in the current signature database. While running two antivirus programs on one PC at once really is a bad practice, the presence of additional special software to intercept malicious software - is a reasonable move. The only question is which program to choose. Just one of the best programs of its kind is the Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.0.

At the stage of the installation package Spybot - Search & Destroy offers multiple configuration options and a traditional software license agreement. Another thing is that any settings you specify here can be changed later, so that the whole process should not take you more than a few minutes. After installation the user is presented an updated graphical interface, which compares favorably with a fresh view, compared with the previous version. The main window of the advanced mode there are three sections to the basic, advanced and professional tools. When you turn off the advanced mode is only a section «Basic tools».

Many of the tools in the main window are unlikely to be in demand in the real practice. That is why the focus is on truly relevant applications and functions. One of the most important and useful features - it «System Scan», traditional anti-virus scanner with its own database of signatures. After the scan window can be rolled up and go about their business. At any time, scanning can be suspended or terminated. Scan results can be viewed in a separate journal where you can correct the problems found, disassemble false positives or eliminate dangerous elements manually.

Individual file scan engine that helps verify files downloaded from untrusted sources. Here you can select individual files and folders to scan with the possibility of suspending the process and maintaining the log. The "immunization" helps protect web browsers (Firefox and Internet Explorer). This feature makes some changes to the working files browsers to block some known methods hacking applied to malicious web-sites.

Another useful tool is called «Startup Tools». While the interface of this module is quite complicated, you can view and fix a lot of boot parameters and registry keys without stopping the core system processes. Among other things, the package of Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.0 offers the traditional features such as quarantine, statistics, automatic update, restore the system settings, secure file deletion, rootkit scan, scan smartphones and creating bootable media.

Package Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.0 has a rather modest appetite for system resources even when the anti-virus scanning. The main advantage of this product is that it serves as a powerful additional Antivirus without interfering with the main anti-virus system. Users can enjoy two versions - free and commercial. It is worth noting that it is quite powerful and complex product, so is not suitable for all users, because its use requires some preparation.
