Software Product Description

Malware attacks are on the rise, and PC security is ever becoming a major concern for people around the world, especially with the widespread use of the Internet. Thankfully, that same Internet is offering means of checking and protecting against malware. One program that uses the power of the Web to offer such security is Crystal Security.

The cloud-based system protects computers by detecting and removing malware and other malicious programs. It uses advanced technology to detect malware and inform computer owners about any changes in real time.

The portable application protects against the latest malware and viruses by gathering data from its large network of user systems from almost every part of the world. It automatically uploads items it detects to analyze them more thoroughly in the online detection database. It has a whitelist and blacklist system that makes it easy to identify and mark suspicious items.

You can set how you want Crystal Security to check up your system and give you notifications. It accepts shell integration that allows you to analyze files by right-clicking on them and selecting the correct option.

Installing several anti-virus and anti-malware programs on a computer can lead to conflicts that interfere with performance. Fortunately, Crystal Security works seamlessly along any antivirus you have installed.

Requires: Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.


"Does not live up to its good ratings"

Pros: - free - does not put a large load on the system or resources - configurable - has a silent mode

Cons: - large false positive rate, manages to incorrectly classify perfectly legitimate programs that no other antivirus/antimalware program found suspicious - its "dynamic engine" (what can this thing be?) causes all these mistakes (fortunately it can be switched off) - restore from the quarantine fails, the program freezes, the quarantined files are lost

Other Thoughts: My confidence in this program fell really low, after these false positives, and the fact that I had to re-install those program I could not restore from the quarantine. I wonder if this can protect me from something really malicious, or it only causes me headaches...
