G Data TotalSecurity not only protects your computer from all known viruses and threats, but it also keeps your system protected at all times thanks to its new idle scan, known as Double-Scan technology. It remains active in the background waiting for the right moment to scan your computer looking for viruses, worms, spam, and hacking activities without using up your resources.
This state-of-the-art anti-virus software tool uses the most advanced recognition methods to detect all threats and attacks as soon as they are produced, in order to act accordingly at the shortest response time.
Whenever you launch its powerful scan, TotalSecurity will check your system areas, will look for rootkits, and – of course – will detect any virus activity going on in your computer. It will try to check all files in your system, letting you know which are password-protected and which have denied access to its scanning routines.
The level of customization available throughout the application is extremely high. Sometimes, it may be even too high for some users. However, novice users do not need to panic – just leave the default settings untouched and TotalSecurity will still perform its magic without any further intervention on your side.
TotalSecurity comes also with a new backup and restore utility, capable of creating an ISO image of your entire system in order to provide you with a backup copy that you can use in case of a massive system failure. Finally, it is worth noting that G Data has thrown in some useful utilities to help you fine-tune your system, so that it makes the most of the resources available.
