One might well ask exactly what is CounterSpy, although the name does give somewhat of a large clue. Effectively, CounterSpy is one of the best anti spyware solutions currently available on the market.
Fully compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7, this software protects computer against all sorts of threats, including adware, malware, rootkits and, of course, spyware.
Much unlike other first generation security software, the CounterSpy software runs in the background without slowing a system down. Apart from online protection, this package also offers users privacy protection by allowing them to completely clear browsing history and erasing files thoroughly.
The program is extremely easy to use. It has been divided into four separate categories, which have been further divided into sub-categories. Users are guided intuitively through the various applications and processes.
The software settings are fully customizable, making it excellent for users of all levels of experience and skills. A beginner may, for example, use the default settings for the Active Protection, while a more experienced user may choose to select the kind of thing the program will protect against and what sort of thing it will ignore.
This software is able to detect just about every bit of malware or spyware possible and the Active protection feature, which will run in the background throughout the period the computer is switched on, thereby shielding it continuously against all threats, provides protection in real time and facilitates on-access scanning. This means all files will be scanned as they are accessed.
The engine of the CounterSpy software is a hybrid combining malware and spyware protection. It also uses FirstScan, which scans the computer before the Windows operating system is loaded in order to detect and effectively remove deep-rooted rootkits and malware.
Removal of threats is continually effective, due to the constant efforts of the research team to remain on top of newly evolving threats and continuously provided, fast updates. The trial version of the program is, by the way, fully functional – unlike the trial versions of other products – and will remove, as well as detect threats as a result.
CounterSpy is incredibly efficient with regards to memory and CPU usage. It will be possible to run multi-tasks even throughout a full active scan without any noticeable slow down.
A full scan will take a maximum of 20 minutes, even on malware-infested, generally slow systems. The software is designed to optimize performance without using too many precious resources while performing scans at excellent speeds.
A comprehensive integrated help application is backed up by excellent, toll-free telephone, chat and e-mail support. Customer services can only be described as first rate and the active blog, written by the company’s team of research and development technicians, provides a host of additional, interesting information.
To sum up the answer to the question: ‘What is Counterspy?’, this software is a most comprehensive solution to anti-spyware and anti-malware requirements that protects computers and user-privacy with the help of a combination of advanced, powerful features and most effective management of resources.
The interface is advanced enough for experienced users, yet easy to use even for newcomers. It has received top ratings from a variety of review sites and has won many awards in the process.
The CounterSpy software package is available for free downloads right up to December 31, 2011. This is due to the fact that the package is to be replaced by the Vipre Antivirus package, which has been developed and created to provide even more advanced and greater protection for computers and naturally user privacy.
