Is your security software really working?

Ensure your antivirus, antispyware and other security apps are working optimally with these free tools.

Spurred by phenomenal demand, the security software industry is mushrooming. That's a good thing: with the sophistication of hackers and snooping apps at an all time high, we need all the security we can get, especially since no single anti malware application is likely to provide complete protection. A layered approach running a variety of programs, each helping to cover the others' shortcomings, works best for dealing with new threats.

For instance, you might need a "raw PC analysis" tool that reviews the apps that start automatically with Windows and stops any spies from loading on their own. Security & Privacy < Security Fixes < Is your security software really working?
