Get Your Best Malware Protection

Malware protection is essential as malware attacks have become more frequent. There is now more emphasis on protection. Attention has begun to shift from viruses and spyware protection, to malware. New programs have been developed to specifically combat malware.

Anti-malware programs can combat malware in two ways:

  1. They can provide real time protection against the installation of malware software on a computer. This type of spyware protection works the same way as that of antivirus protection in that the anti-malware software scans all incoming network data for malware software and blocks any threats it comes across.
  2. Anti-malware software programs can be used solely for detection and removal of malware software that has already been installed onto a computer. This type of protection is normally much easier to use and more popular. This type of anti-malware software scans the contents of the windows registry, operating system files, and installed programs on a computer and will provide a list of any threats found, allowing the user to choose which files to delete or keep, or to compare this list to a list of known malware components, removing files that match.

Real-time protection from malware works the same way as real-time anti-virus protection. The software scans disk files at download time, and blocks the activity of components known to represent malware. It may also intercept attempts to install start-up items or to modify browser settings. Because many malware components are installed as a result of browser exploits or user error, using internet security software, some of which are anti-malware, is good strategy. Also using "sandbox" browsers which essentially babysit the user and their browser can also be effective in helping to restrict any damage done.
