ThreatFire protects you by intelligently blocking behavior consistent with that of malware such as viruses, worms, trojans, spyware, adware, rootkits, keyloggers, and buffer overflows. ThreatFire vigilantly monitors any activity that might compromise the security of your computer. Technological advances allow ThreatFire to monitor your computer at very low levels to seek out even deeply hidden threats. By participating in ThreatFire‘s Secure Community, a network of users who continuously supply information about emerging threats by means of the software itself, you‘re helping PC Tools identify new threats quickly, ensuring you always have the most up-to-date protection available. When you install ThreatFire, it is already fully configured and no additional set up is required. ThreatFire will automatically block any known malicious threats. For indeterminate threats, or threats that might be a virus, it will immediately suspend the suspicious process and present you with the choice to --Allow| or --Quarantine| the process. You can always undo any quarantine action through the --Restore| option in the Threat Control Quarantine tab. Information about the type of threat, a description of what it does, and the risk level associated with that type of threat, are always provided so that the program is intuitive and easy-to-use. You also have the option of customizing your own rules if you wish to supplement ThreatFire‘s comprehensive built in protection, but you are very strongly advised not to do this unless you have expert knowledge of your computer.
