Computer viruses are everywhere and everybody needs a good and secure anti-virus software to protect a computer from various malware. Steganos AntiVirus 2009 does its work by watching silently the interfaces of your computer and carefully screens for script, macro, file and boot sector viruses.

While surfing the Internet, some sites need Active X applications to load completely and this applications can store viruses. A virus lurks in a compressed file and when you decompress the file it gets activated. With Steganos Antivirus, polymorphous viruses hidden in Active X as well as Java applications are discovered and dealt with.

Its user interface or GUI is very eye candy, simple and easy-to-use. It includes Web Shield and Resident Shield to protect your data from viruses and also from rootkits. It has a good Help section and FAQs online.

This antivirus also protects the computer from Trojan horses. Unknown viruses are also detected and are terminated immediately. Using the heuristic technology, even the viruses that are not included in the database are recognized and removed at once. Incoming and outgoing E-mails in your mailbox are scanned for various viruses and, if found, are terminated in real time. Using this technique helps to ensure that your e-mails are virus free. Your attachments and compressed files are thoroughly scanned in order to avoid any virus infection.

Steganos AntiVirus 2009 is a good antivirus program. A few days back, I tested this software and I can tell you it really works. Now I can download anything from the Internet and be free from all viruses. This software is not expensive, it is a one-time purchase, and it really protects your computer from Trojan horses and various other malware.
