Browser Defender

If you are looking for Browser Defender, you have come to the right place. We explain what Browser Defender is and point you to the official download.

What is Browser Defender?

Most computer systems crash, error messages and automatic shutdown problems have been linked to unsuspected website links that launch a barrage of virus, rendering the computer unusable and the user paralyzed with high repair costs, not to mention infected or totally lost data. 

The Browser Defender is a computer security toolbar that enables a user to safely browse the Internet by launching a display site that rates the security level of the website being accessed as the Internet is being browsed.  This application is created by PC Tools, developer of computer security utilities, and works with Windows OS.  It supports browsers Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.  It is available for free download. 

Aside from instant website ratings display, the features of the Browser Defender includes marking up search engine results on top of the browser menu from search engines like Yahoo! or Google.  This way, users are immediately notified of a potential threat.  This feature can save hundreds of dollars in computer repair service cost since users can have a heads up as to the site that are marked as unsafe or have malicious behavior before it is clicked.  

The more advance version of the Browser Defender, the Spyware Doctor with Antivirus, also from PC tools, is available for purchase.  It integrates the basic features of the Browser Defender with more sophisticated security features and disabling utilities, for total computer security.
