Comprehensive Antivirus Security and Spyware Protection
It is estimated that new viruses are created every five minutes. Viruses can wipe out your hard drive, destroy your files and steal sensitive data without you knowing it. To keep your computers and network safe from attacks, you need comprehensive virus protection software that automatically updates itself with the latest patches so you never have to worry. PC-Cillin does just that. It detects and removes viruses from emails, Internet downloads, removable media, and your PC. The Outbreak Warning System feature sends alerts to warn you of new threats, and security updates are automatically deployed as soon as they are available.

But more than that, PC-Cillin also features leading anti-spyware technology that blocks spyware and grayware in real time. This keeps unwanted "eyes" that track your every computer move out of your PC. Once you install PC-Cillin, you can run a manual scan, or schedule a regular scan that will detect and remove any spyware that is already installed on your PC. New Exception Lists and enhanced Quarantine Management features give you the control to keep, delete or restore programs.

Protecting Your Identity and Wireless Network
PC-Cillin's unique URL filtering, anti-spam, and patent-pending technologies work together to block fraudulent Web sites, phishing emails, and pharming attacks -- scams that are designed to scrape your hard drive for financial data, user names, and passwords. The software's Anti-Fraud Wizard makes it easy to configure, and the Anti-Fraud Toolbar helps you avoid scams by displaying a credibility rating of Web sites in real time. Advanced spam-filtering technology blocks spam from flooding your inbox, and advanced integration with Microsoft Outlook makes it easy to set your preferences.

PC-Cillin also includes the industry's first alert system for wireless home networks, sending rapid alerts as soon as an unauthorized user intrudes your wireless network. The personal firewall prevents intrusion from hackers, and blocks network viruses, like the well-known ZOTOB worm, which targets network vulnerabilities. A centralized management console makes it easy to configure, update, and manage all aspects of security for every PC on your home network -- wherever PC-cillin 2006 is installed.

PC-Cillin makes protecting your data as easy as it can get by performing regular, scheduled scans of your PC, alerting you to operating system/browser vulnerabilities, and providing one-click access to Microsoft Windows Update. And if you're a parent, you know how important it is to protect your children from the dark sides of the Web. Parental controls allow you to manage your children's Web activity by blocking Web sites and inappropriate content.
