    "Simple protection from a Free Link Scanner"

    May 6, 2011  |   By glindsay


    Free; very low consumer of RAM and CPU time; it does check links and it does warn you.


    No real cons for this price but it hasn't discovered any threats yet.


    My data has only to be corrupted once for me to think that employing this extra level of protection is helpful. Although I have extensive backup systems in place, it's nice to stop problems at the front door. It's like installing electrical spike and lightning strike filters before trouble gets through your meter. It only has to work once to be worth it.
