Geek Superhero

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This program provides an impressive number of PC-protection tools in an easy-to-use package. Geek Superhero's tabbed interface is a cinch to navigate, and the cartoon images of a nerdy-looking superhero add some flair. Any time a new program attempts to install itself, this utility lets you accept or reject it, which could be helpful in the fight against adware. The program gives you options for protecting your Internet Explorer settings, your Web connection, your Start menu, and your desktop. It also can safeguard you against Web bugs that track your movement. Clicking the icon next to each security option gives you detailed information about how the program protects your computer from a particular type of attack. The pop-up blocker performed well in our tests, although it couldn't handle floating ads. You can choose to allow pop-ups from a trusted site with a quick press of the Control key. In our analysis, anyone concerned with protecting their PC from malicious intruders can benefit from Geek Superhero.
