WHY DO I NEED IT?
Today's online activities often require you to use passwords for online games, email, websites, online banking and much much more. Malicious people create malware programs that can infect your computer and steal these passwords or steal your personal files on your computer.
Even if your antivirus and spyware is updated every minute you are still vulnerable to malware. Antivirus / spyware programs often check for an exact copy of known malware. When some malicious person creates a mutation or slightly different version of a known malware program your protection is gone. Guardian can alert you to these mutations.
HOW DO I USE GUARDIAN?
Upon startup Guardian will quickly view all your running processes. Any programs that are found on our known safe list will automatically be moved to the approved list. Any program that is left on the unknown list you will want to view more information about it to be sure that the program is not malware. This can be easily be done with the built-in tools. If you determine that the program is safe you should move it to the approved list. After you have quickly verified all items in the unknown list for malware you may then continue your online activities and feel safe in the knowledge that your information/accounts are safe.
