Key Features of Desktop Armor|
Here are the reasons why you want Desktop Armor working to protect your computer from Internet viruses, trojans and other nasty things.
|Browser and Desktop Protection|
Ever installed a new piece of software only to find lots of unwanted shortcuts on your desktop, unwanted favorites in your browser, a different browser homepage, or unwanted icons on your quick launch toolbar? (Or all of these?)|
Not any more!
Desktop Armor let's YOU decide whether you want new icons or favorites added to your computer.
Ever had a program add itself to start when Windows starts without asking? Or add and re-add itself to start when Windows every time you run it?
|Protects Important Settings|
Hopefully you've never had a Virus or Trojan that changes all kinds of
settings on your computer to make your web searches go to somewhere else
or to spy on you or make your modem dial an expensive long-distance number or worse!|
Desktop Armor can help!
Desktop Armor watches for many different things that Viruses and Trojans and other Scoundrels will change on your computer. There are dozens and dozens of important settings that Desktop Armor watches for changes.
You've probably gotten emails pretending to be from some company, asking you to
go and give out your login or credit card info. These Phishing Scams
are getting more and more sneaky and hard to identify.
Phishing Net protects you from those Phishing Scams by alerting
you if you are about to visit a suspicous website!
More Info and some examples of how tricky these scams can be.
Popup windows are those advertising windows that appear when you visit some web sites--trying to sell you credit cards, little cameras, movie and TV previews, and more. |
Popup Slapdown is a popup window blocker for Internet Explorer that keeps all those ad windows from appearing. It works simply (and even invisibly) in your web browser. When a popup window is detected and blocked, a sound will be played, and the main Internet Explorer window will be flashed. (You can change how those work if you don't want it to flash, etc.)
|Web Bug Swatter|
Web Bugs are little tiny images websites include in their pages. They load a picture from another website, which allows the other website to set a cookie on your computer. Usually these pictures are tiny; either invisible or as big as the period at the end of this sentence. So you don't see them.|
They are most commonly used to track you as you visit a website or for other advertising reasons. Desktop Armor's Bug Swatter can automatically remove these Web Bugs from webpages as you surf the Internet.
EXAMPLE: This page is loading an image from one of our other web sites, www.getright.com. It is a 1-pixel transparent GIF. We are NOT setting a cookie to track you--BUT WE COULD! If you are running Desktop Armor right now, you should see the "Web Bug Killed" message at the bottom of this page.
|See It In Action|
Desktop Armor is a program that's harder to see in action.
With a download manager (like GetRight) you can
download a file and see it work.
Desktop Armor is more like a virus scanner--where it's hard to really see
it work until the virus scanner pops up and says "Hey! I Found a Virus!"
So we created a little Scoundrel Simulator program. You can use this program to safely see some of the changes commonly made by malicious programs (like changing your browser's home page and making it hard to change it back.) More Info Here!
