Security was always one of the vulnerable parts of the Windows operating system. Even newer versions of the OS are not equipped with the most reliable antivirus and firewall. And when we say “security”, we mean the protection from all kinds of virus threats. In addition to keeping the computer safe, a lot of people are concerned with preservation of their personal data. For this reason, password managers are so popular nowadays. These programs contain a secure database in which users store information about credit cards, documents, as well as account details for various clients, applications and network services. With the help of these programs, users can unload their memory by erasing unnecessary information and memorizing only one master password for accessing the manager.
Everyone knows how antiviruses work. These are security tools designed to protect the computer in real-time and perform a scan on user’s request. Aside from antiviruses, in the usual sense of the word, there are so-called antivirus scanners. They are small utilities that commonly do not require installation and do not monitor the computer’s security at all times. Instead, they can quickly analyze the system and detect potentially dangerous items and vulnerabilities. The main advantage of using antivirus scanners comes from the fact that they perform better in contrast to standard antivirus solutions and are capable of detecting even the rarest infections.
