This tool will check your system daily and then it will compare the status of system configuration with the last time, when it scanned you system. It will compare the status on a graph showing changes per week. When a tool gets old or does not get updated with time then, it cannot stop the upcoming threats from internet and other means. As the virus definitions, keep on changing with time and so their attacks. These old plug-in and add-on become the weak spot in your system, which are exposed over the network.


The main application window of this tool is divided into three parts, first parts consists of scanning the whole system. As soon as you install this tool, it will ask you to scan the whole system for the present threats. Then it will show you the report on the second section, here you will be able to see the threats detected in your system and the gap of time between the last scan and the current date. Third section of this window consists of a graph which will tell you about the changes in the laptop application configuration.
