Editors' Review

You can find chinks in the armor of this PC security package, but it still does a fairly good job protecting your privacy. When launched, Armor Tools displays general PC statistics, such as the amount of free RAM and the installed OS. Icons for the main features run down the left-hand side of the logically arranged main window. The Encrypt Disk feature does just what you'd think, allowing you to lock down certain drives or areas of your system with a password. We also like the Invisible Man option, which lets you perform any number of actions on your PC and restore it to the state it was in before you started working--like Windows XP's System Restore function, but with the ability to delete incriminating files. Armor Tools also can wipe your traces from certain Windows system areas and Internet Explorer, though not from popular alternative browsers like Opera and Firefox. The file shredder offers two deletion methods, but it won't let you choose from different secure-erasing algorithms, so we wouldn't trust it with ultrasensitive data. Also, while Armor Tools lets you hide printers and Start menu items, you can't password-protect this feature, so some savvy users might find a way to circumvent it. All in all, though, Armor Tools is sturdy enough to deserve consideration.
