In this day and age, hacking can be a significant threat to your personal computer and the data stored within it. Hackers use various methods to take control or crash your PC, and as such a defensive implement needs to be used to protect it.
Regardless, no anti-virus system is capable of keeping your computer safe from everything, and the best thing to do to mend this issue is to implement an anti-hacking tool that works well with your current antivirus. This should be considered as an extra shielding against internet threats.
Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection
This is a tool which is designed to find and remove any threatening malware that exists on your PC. It is designed to work in tandem with Windows 10’s regular security protection by providing an extra layer of defense if you get breached by a hack. Once it has detected the malware, it will give you various possible responses to take.
It is available for various versions of Windows such as Enterprise, Pro, and their Educational variants.
Reason Core Security
Reason Core Security is a tool that helps you remove adware and malware that might be missed by your regular antivirus program. Reason Core Security is designed to offer instant, real-time protection and the capability to stop the installation of unwanted programs. It also boasts a multi-layered structure.
It is also subtle, quiet and won’t do anything to chip at your system’s resources. The software also makes use of cloud-based scans that help protect you from the newest threats.
This is one of the more aggressive tools that will have no mercy in fighting against spyware, Trojans, adware, computer worms, parasites, rootkits and other harmful apps that get in its way. It also has a repair system that brings back to function applications and programs that were shut-down by malware. You will also be provided with post-scan logs. Again, despite its proficiency, it should not replace a normal antivirus but should come as an extra defensive system.
Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit
EMET is a toolkit that is provided by Microsoft Windows that provides freeware security capabilities. It gives you an interface that helps tune security features native to Windows. What this excels at is anticipating the usual actions performed by hackers, and afterwards end, block divert and cancel these actions. EMET is known to work well with most applications, be them regular or business related.
This tool is made to fix several vulnerabilities in Windows’s defenses, especially some that hackers can abuse. For example, it disables various ‘’Run as Administrator’’ weak spots, it cleans your PC’s privacy, it finds and deletes keyloggers, and blocks donation spams from PayPal.
Trojan Remover is made to auto-remove any Trojans, adware, spyware, worms, and other assorted malware afflictions that might plague your PC. It works better than a standard anti-virus software, and deals with many issues that might have slipped through your defenses. It does a good job in removing hidden malware that are used with the rootkit method. Besides this, it cleans out any modifications that a malware could have made to your system.
A portable anti-virus program that aims at detecting and removing harmful files and entries that are tied to a malware. This is another good, and free, layer of protection that can supplement your standard anti-virus solution, and manage a lot of issues that it cannot.
It is not dependent on signatures from viruses, and as such, it is efficient in gathering intelligence from scans. Afterwards, it will make decisions based on what information it has gathered from these scans.
