Download ThreatFire Anti-spyware Anti-malware Free
Use threatfire with any other traditional antivirus program you like. Its more like an anti-spyware and anti-malware from PCTools. ThreatFire uses advanced patent-pending technology to detect signs of malicious behavior commonly used by malware threats. ThreatFire is unlike traditional antivirus products that rely on old fashioned “signature” technology and require updating every time a new threat occurs.
By constantly monitoring the activity on your PC ThreatFire’s ActiveDefense technology is able to hunt down and paralyze threats that are too new or too clever to be recognized by traditional security software.
ThreatFire employs an intelligent behavioral engine to only alert you on truly malicious behavior, because sometimes even legitimate software may look malicious. This means you are only alerted when you really need to be.
ThreatFire offers real-time prevention of virus and malware infections by identifying suspicious behavior (“zero-day” events) as it happens, before malicious code installs itself on your PC. Formerly known as CyberHawk, ThreatFire has made some dramatic and noticeable feature improvements since it was bought by PC Tools.
ThreatFire seeks out rootkits, heuristics-based threats, viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, adware, keyloggers, and buffer overflows. The software real-time protection didn’t noticeably slow down our computer, and the customizable advanced settings are excellent.
The only problem you may encounter sometimes is, threats would be detected but without a name label.
