What is PestPatrol?

PestPatrol is a powerful security and personal privacy tool that detects and eliminates destructive pests like trojans, spyware, adware and hacker tools. By complementing anti-virus and firewall software, PestPatrol fills the hole left by these tools. PestPatrol does not replace Anti virus software or Firewalls, it works with them because categorically speaking, all security software targets different types of computer threats.

PestPatrol defeats the threat by detecting and removing:

  • Spyware and adware that "phones home" information about you, your computer, and your surfing habits
  • Remote access trojans (RATs) that allow an attacker to remotely control your computer
  • Keystroke loggers that can steal passwords and other confidential data
  • Denial-of-service (DoS) attack agents that can crash or hang a program, or your entire system
  • Probe tools that look for vulnerabilities on your system that a hacker can exploit

PestPatrols easy-to-use interface, automatic updates and extensive on-line research center make it simple to keep your computer clear of unwanted pests. A 2002 PC Magazine Five Star Utility, PestPatrol allows you to surf with confidence, knowing that your personal information stays private and your computer stays secure.

  • Scans all or selected file types, including inside archives
  • Scans memory for active pests and kills the process
  • Zaps spyware cookies before they can phone home about you
  • Stops known and unknown keyloggers from hooking your keyboard
  • Quarantines or deletes any identified pest
  • Checks and removes pests from registry and start-up areas
  • Downloads and installs updates automatically on availability
  • Tells you the specific threat level of any pest found
  • Saves all pest-related events in an easy-to-read log file

The PestPatrol approach

strong>PestPatrol scans your system, looking specifically for malicious code. It currently can detect some 32,000 pests, and the database continues to grow. strong>PestPatrol is designed to be very fast and can scan 33,000 files per minute.

How does PestPatrol differ from anti-virus software?
strong>PestPatrol is not an anti-virus product and it will not remove viruses. strong>PestPatrol looks for and detects other malicious code, including trojans, hacker tools, Denial-of-Service attack agents, and spyware. Since anti-virus products focus on viruses, strong>PestPatrol used in conjunction with an anti-virus product offers complete and reliable protection from the full complement of malicious code that might result in downtime, loss of employee productivity and dissemination of dangerous code.

How does PestPatrol stay current?
We have created a number of tools that automatically manage the strong>PestPatrol database, trapping new malicious code and constantly updating the database. Such new files are downloaded and automatically analyzed.

Information on how to remove this malicious code from the registry, from ini files, and from the file system is automatically added to our strong>PestPatrol.dat database. The database is automatically posted to the web site so that users of strong>PestPatrol have access to the latest strings; the product looks for updates and downloads them automatically, too. The result: strong>PestPatrol can detect a pest within a few minutes of its availability on the Internet and have the necessary removal information immediately available.

Compatibility with anti-virus
strong>PestPatrol is designed to work with anti-virus software, not instead of it. This design required that several conditions be met:

  • the scanning time for strong>PestPatrol needed to be lightning fast;
  • the product needed to be "lightweight", taking little machine overhead;
  • the product needed to detect problems that the anti-virus software missed, with little overlap.

PestPatrol benefits:
strong>PestPatrol is fast because its detection algorithms are specifically built for pest detection. At the time of writing, the database contains 11 different pieces of information on each of 32,000 different pests - over 350,000 information elements. strong>PestPatrol is flexible, with powerful command line capabilities to facilitate scheduling, network-wide scanning (including systems connecting to corporate servers via VPN), reporting, and updating.

Your purchase includes a one-year subscription to pest detection file updates, product upgrades, and online technical support.

Note: The evaluation version of strong>PestPatrol will identify pests on your system, but the functionality to remove pests is disabled.
