When it comes to computer security protection, it will make people think of some domestic security “family bucket” first. However, while these software can protect your computer, they can also cause some problems for users due to software promotion and bundling. If you are tired of some domestic security packages, you can try this free security software from abroad, IObit Malware Fighter.
When installing IObit Malware Fighter, the software can automatically identify the current system language environment and install the Simplified Chinese version. However, it should be noted that there is an Advanced SystemCare optimization tool option in the installation process, if you do not need this feature, choose not to agree and skip it.
After running the software, there is an icon resident in the system tray, click the icon to open the main window of the software. The three icons in the lower right corner of the window represent three engines: the first is the IObit anti-malware engine; the second is the anti-ransomware engine; and the third is the Bitdefender engine, which is also the world’s most advanced anti-malware and anti-virus engine (Figure 1). The first one is turned on by default, and the last two are optional.
If you want to perform a security scan of the system, you can choose from three scanning methods. Click the “Scan” button on the left menu bar, to perform an intelligent scan of critical areas of the system, select “Scan critical areas of the system”; to scan the entire system and hard disk, select “Scan all hard disks completely “If you want to scan a specific partition, folder or file, select “Scan selected items” for custom scanning (Figure 2).
If you need to enable the anti-ransomware feature, select the “Ransomware Defender” button on the left, and then open the anti-ransomware engine in the open window (Figure 3).
Internet security protection is very important, and browser security is a top priority. To do this, you can click the “Browser Protection” button and select the options of Home Page Protection, Download Protection, Plug-in/Toolbar Cleanup, Anti-Tracking, DNS Protection, Internet Protection & Ad Blocking in the settings window (Figure 4). This will provide a full range of protection for the Internet access process.
Tip: Click on the “Security” button to select the protection engine and protection status (Figure 5). The free version offers the most basic protection options.
