The Computer section allows you to configure the antivirus and antispyware settings, lets you choose how to handle removable media and configure the HIPS (Host-based Intrusion Prevention System). By configuring these features, you can define the advanced protection of your computer.
Antivirus and antispyware protection guards against malicious system attacks by controlling file, email and Internet communication. If a threat with malicious code is detected, the Antivirus module can eliminate it by first blocking it, and then cleaning, deleting or moving it to quarantine.
The Device control module allows you to scan, block or adjust extended filters/permissions for removable media and how the user accesses and works with these devices.
HIPS protects your system from malware and unwanted activity attempting to negatively affect your computer. HIPS utilizes advanced behavioral analysis coupled with the detection capabilities of network filtering to monitor running processes, files and registry keys, actively blocking and preventing any such attempts.
