"Protect your PC ."
If you have a free antivirus application installed on your computer and you would like to be certain that you are truly protected while surfing the internet, then the Immunet Protection is the ideal security software for you. Similar to the majority of antivirus programs released in the past couple of year, this provides real-time protection using cloud technologies.
Since everything will be monitored from a cloud server, you can be certain that it will always be updated, without you having to download additional signatures, and it will provide unbiased notices.
In order to install Immunet Protection on your machine you will need an internet connection in working condition, at least 100MB space on your hard disk, 256RAM, 300MHz processor or faster and a minimum Windows XP, SP3 or better. During the installation you will have the option of automatically turning on the “submit suspicious files for analysis” option. It is necessary to point out the fact that unless you currently have one of the many antivirus programs officially supported by Immunet, the program will be identified as a Trojan (false positive).
The UI of the Immunet Free Antivirus is quite stylish and attractive, yet clean and very easy to comprehend. The main settings of the program are separated into three distinct windows, namely community, computer and product settings. On the right side of the aforementioned panels, users can find two indicatives that show the percentage of CPU resources used and memory usage. On the opposite side, you will see the name of the other antivirus software installed. In the right lower part of the UI, you can find the About, Feedback and Support buttons, the latter taking you to the program’s forum where you can read users’ impressions and issues with the software.
The main advantage of Immunet is that it is extremely light and able to run concomitantly with regular antivirus applications. Crunching down the numbers, that means 35% smoother for the system’s resources and compatibility with at least 18 traditional security solutions, according to the developer. In general, people are very reluctant to install a second layer of protection in addition to their standard antivirus. However, a few benchmark tests have shown that Immunet does what it claims and essentially, does not affect the overall performance of the computer.
Some users state that Immunet Free Antivirus has detected a number of false positives. However, we would like to point out the fact that the false positive issues are common with many antivirus protection software programs. Regardless of the advanced technology incorporated and the monitoring mechanisms, there will always be false positives.
Overall, the application does not bring anything new to the antivirus program field except the impressively low resources consumption. However, due to the fact that it is especially designed to act as an additional protection layer and to work simultaneously with other security suites, it does not include a lot of the traditional features.
