Designed to fill security breaches and usability gaps in existing protection software, pcInternet Patrol makes a handy add-on to your existing set of security tools. The application compensates for its rather lengthy installation process with a modern, attractive, and straightforward interface. The program asks your permission every time a new application wants to start and remembers your decision for later. The program also comes with a database of safe applications, so it won't bug users with endless questions. pcInternet Patrol has a database of known malicious applications, though our tests show it doesn't include adware. The utility's biggest advantage is that it lets you quickly submit an unknown suspicious application to pcInternet Patrol's developers for analysis. While waiting for an answer, you can block all network operations for the software in question. We recommend pcInternet Patrol as a good addition to antivirus utilities, spyware-removal tools, and firewalls.

Developer's Description

pcInternet Patrol (pcIP) Application Control Suite is a powerful security and personal privacy tool that detects and prevents malware like Trojans, spyware, adware, virus, injected code, and other hacker tools. It complements your standard Windows Firewall. Choose pcIP if: you are looking for a Personal Firewall, but do not have security expertise to use it effectively, you need strong security, but are not prepared to bear the restricted choice of applications to run, you want protection against fast-spreading malicious programs before they are detectable by existing Antivirus software, you are thinking about an application firewall with a centralized management console but cannot afford to hire an onsite security administrator.

pcIP is the system that will protect you even if a hacker is using a completely unknown malicious program that exists in a single copy specifically designed to target you or your business. Version may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
