Are you a security freak? If yes then this tool is going to interest you a lot. Anti-Hacker is a free software designed to prevent possible hacking attacks on Windows and close all vulnerabilities. You can make your computer hack-proof by a few clicks. Remember, using the tool without knowing what you are doing can be pretty, and so it comes with a lot of warnings. So proceed cautiously and do not take any step or patch anything without having proper knowledge about it. In this post, we will discuss various features and functionalities of the tool.
To start with, the most anticipated feature of the tool is the change in UAC settings. According to the developer of the tool, running your computer in an administrator account brings about a lot of vulnerabilities and other potential security risks. So what this tool does it convert your existing account to a guest account limiting its capabilities and creating another Administrator account, which can be used to perform all the tasks which require elevated permissions.
It is advised to use the converted guest account for normal activities like browsing, reading emails, downloading content and the administrator account to be used for more advanced purposes like changing system settings or updating Windows.
Anti-Hacker automatically disables ‘Run as Administrator’ in lower user accounts to minimize security threats. Moreover, it turns your User Account Control to its highest settings, to clear out all the possibilities of hacking into the system.
Next comes the Firewall security fixes, you can go to ‘Windows Firewall’ tab and hit ‘Scan Firewall’ to scan for potential threats, and then you can simply patch the security fix and rule out all the possibilities. The tool may set the Firewall to block both inbound and outbound connections so before proceeding with this option you must be aware of the consequences.
Under the ‘Privacy’ tab, you can scan for privacy threats which can again be easily fixed by hitting the Erase Privacy button. Anti-Hacker comes with a built-in startup scanner that can provide you with all the programs associated with Windows startup.
For internet banking users, Anti-Hacker is equipped with a virtual keyboard that is completely keylogging proof and can prevent potential key loggers from logging your sensitive information.
Removing the program is again not such an easy task, I recommend you to go to the Help section in the program for more information on removing the software and reverting back to your User Accounts settings.
Anti-Hacker is a great security tool and is highly recommended for experienced users, as it needs to be handled with care. You can easily turn your computer hacker-proof with this easy to use freeware.
