Editors' Review

Freeware IObit Security 360 is a fast and welterweight utility for both detecting and removing malware, and determining any security holes in your system before they can been exploited. The interface has large icons with simple labels that won't confuse novices, and the tools menu offers some useful features that more advanced users are sure to appreciate.

The Overview tab is the main window and contains links for immediate Smart scans, definition file updates, a "security analysis," which evaluates potential exploits in your system and includes Windows security patches, and a status update window. This tells you whether your real-time protection, automatic scans and updates, and heuristic-based scans are on or off. Automatic scans and updates and scheduled scans, are restricted to the paid upgrade. The Scan tab lets you initiate a Smart scan, a Full scan, or a Custom scan, and the Protection tab lets you toggle your real-time protection status. It seems a bit odd that a user would want the separate controls the program offers for "known malware" and "unknown threats."

The Tools tab gives you seven useful system security tools. There's a Hijack scan for power users, a Security Holes scan, a Passive Defense that disables cookies in Firefox and Internet Explorer, and ActiveX in IE, and an Unlock and Delete tool for getting rid of files your system thinks are in use. There's a Privacy Sweeper that will clean not just cookies and cache but saved forms, download history, and other Internet traces in all major browsers, as well as utilities like archival tools, multimedia players, and other applications. Annoyingly, a PC Tuneup option takes you to the download page for another IObit program, but users on the go will like the custom portable version that you can launch from a USB key. Security 360 eats about 50MB of RAM when idle, with a Smart scan taking about 6 minutes and a full scan finishing in 45 minutes, making this one of the fastest in its class.

Editor's Note, November 17, 2009: CNET Download.com has received notice from IObit, the maker of Security 360, that they have updated their database to address accusations of intellectual property theft. (Read more about the dispute in our CNET News story.)

"IOBIT Security 360"

May 27, 2011  |  By Jughead4158

 |  Version: IObit Security 360 1.10

Pros

Iobit Security 360 seems to do what its advertised to do, I like how its has a banner blocker built into the software tools to kill potential spyware and unwanted cookes from the system it has definitely speeded up my Internet Explorer 9.

Cons

The bad side to this program is that after doing a full scan of my system and running all the tools, 360 has shut down my media streaming and I can't turn it back on at all. the only way I could get streaming back was to do a system restore

Summary

The bad side to this program is that after doing a full scan of my system and running all the tools for protection 360 has shut down my media streaming and I can't turn it back on at all. the only way I could get streaming back was to do a system restore, recomend that IOBIT security fixes this I have contacted them about the error and all I've gotten is a total run around and a dont call us we will call you response from them, they really need to fix this bug

"I had pop ups like crazzy, I scaned it !!THEY STOPED!!"

November 16, 2009  |  By Raul2012

 |  Version: IObit Security 360 1.10

Pros

When the computer has problems like, freezing, starts going other sites then the one it was meant to go, starts slowing down, I just do a full scan and the IObit Security 360 clean every thing. And the computer keeps working faster. "Pretty cool"

Cons

I just purcased IObit Security 360 about one month ago and I don't have any complaints yet. And the way things look to me I don't think I will have any complaints any time soon...

Summary

I really like it because it does'nt scew up my computer when I do a cleaning. >:Dislikes: > Some times the scan can take a little longer then I would like. But, it's "great" from my point of view and would most definitely recommend it...

"Beware! AVG says the website contains spyware!"

November 16, 2009  |  By fotofisher

 |  Version: IObit Security 360 1.10

Pros

are you kidding? there is nothing 'pro' about it.

Cons

AVG stopped a call to the update website saying it contains spyware and when trying to uninstall it using the IOBit uninstaller, it DOESN"T uninstall! be sure to manually delete it from the c:\programs\ subdirectory or will continue to run.

Summary

what a P.O.S. You can't even trust software from CNET even when CNET says it is 'spyware' free.

"Another Chinese company stealing from others"

November 16, 2009  |  By danc2heaven

 |  Version: IObit Security 360 1.10

Pros

None at all.

Cons

How could you trust a company for security when they have been caught stealing from other companies. Just use Malwarebytes instead.

"Beats Malwarebytes"

November 15, 2009  |  By trickpirata

 |  Version: IObit Security 360 1.10

Pros

-good interface
-fast scanning
-more tools than malwarebytes
-autoprotection

Cons

none so far.

Summary

Pwnz Malwarebytes in my point of view. Much better interface that Malwarebytes, good detections, fast scanning. Still IOBIT owns it's reputation. Using all their apps in my rig.

P.S - I can't still believe the said accusation. Program hijacking?
