Digital Patrol prides itself on offering excellent protection against spyware. Spyware is one of the most common types of malicious software. Such programs collect personal and even financial information about users of a computer without asking for their consent first. Spyware can range from the mildly annoying yet relatively harmless to extremely dangerous. Regardless of the threat level, however, spyware of any kind is not something that you want to have installed on any computer. Digital Patrol also provides the unique ability to provide protection in addition to any other antivirus software that you may be using. This does not cause any software conflicts and neither does it slow down your computer. This is almost completely unique in the world of computer security software.
Digital Patrol is perhaps the best antivirus program to go for thanks to its powerful anti-Trojan scanner which can find and eliminate over 90 million different instances of malicious software. This includes all types of malware such as Trojans, spyware, viruses, rootkits, worms, malicious Java scripts and ActiveX controls. It also provides heuristic scanning and analysis as does most high-end antivirus software. This will help to protect your computer from new and emerging threats which are not known in the virus definition database. This powerful ability instead looks out for the way a program behaves to detect whether or not it is malicious code. Additionally, Digital Patrol can scan files individually contained within compressed archives of common formats. ZIP, CAB, RAR and ISO among others are supported by this feature.
Digital Patrol also offers cloud protection. This allows files loaded at start-up to be tested by the online service and dealt with in the event that they are found to be malware. Digital Patrol also prides itself on not bombarding you with any false positives. By contrast, many other mainstream antivirus solutions are often guilty of wasting your time by alerting you to non-existent threats.
