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.)

"It's the greatest thing since sliced bread."

June 28, 2010  |  By 69Kuykendall

 |  Version: IObit Security 360 1.50

Pros

It runs so smoothly, and it doesn't interfere with my installed programs. I have a 64 bit OS and not all antivirus programs will run effectively on it; not even some of the most well known programs.

Cons

not applicable.

Summary

It is one of the most effective and smooth running free antivirus programs I have ever been priviledged to use.

"Wonderful app"

June 27, 2010  |  By chamberf

 |  Version: IObit Security 360 1.50

Pros

The UI is extremely friendly and easy to use and understand. On its first scan it found several problems that other AV's missed. I have tried a lot of security software and this one is impressive.

Cons

None so far, except that I didn't find it sooner.

Summary

Try it, I think you will like it. Iobit makes some fine software it seems.

"A great security program to have."

June 26, 2010  |  By billstelling

 |  Version: IObit Security 360 1.50

Pros

It gets the job done and has worked flawlessly for me on Windows 7. I used this along with Advanced System care Pro and i really like the two of them.

Cons

Nothing so far.

Summary

They did a good job with this program and the others they have done and it's a great program to have. I like using it along with the other programs from them I have. It has never fubared my PC and it does what it's advertised to do very well. It has plenty of advanced tools like Hijack Scan and others that help to give you peace of mind when using the net.

"Best free product I have ever used!!!!!!!"

June 24, 2010  |  By weilthoman

 |  Version: IObit Security 360 1.50

Pros

Easy, friendly, and thorough! Each and every feature is effective and efficient.

Cons

Crippleware if you do not buy full product but not really a con. The options available on the free version are still great.

Summary

I have recommended this product to many of my friends. I am always very reluctant to do so with other products because if there is a problem, I ma the first one they will call. I have NEVER received a call about this product.
I recently installed AVAST but turned right around and uninstalled the same day. I encountered compatability issues but have NEVER had those issues with IOBIT.
Very happy consumer.

"Personally, I did think it did much."

June 23, 2010  |  By rebride

 |  Version: IObit Security 360 1.50

Pros

Maybe the security hole thing.

Cons

Keep finding the same cookies, even right after removing them. Did not take care of a BIG problem that malwarebytes handled easily.

Summary

Worthless
