    ire is fantastic but..."

    February 21, 2012  |   By jamescc4


    At least the way I am set up, Threatfire is controlled through the PC Tools Spy Doctor settings. They seem to be part of an integrated product.
    The total package has been really good for catching virus/Trojan and hostile or fake websites.


    It will be a major pain if you don't uncheck the following:
    1) Intelligard to detect potentially unwanted programs,
    2) Scan to detect potentially unwanted programs. If they are checked, the program will put you through the wringer stopping programs and asking you unwarranted questions.
    Also, I have found that I have to download separate solutions for rootkit attacks and senders. In those cases, I had to download a rootkit "fixer" from Kaspersky or PCTools.


    Overall a great program with some setting tweaks.
