    Main Advantages of Active Virus Shield
    Highly Effective Antivirus Protection. Active Virus Shield utilizes the latest technology to do both traditional signature-based detection, as well as in-depth scanning of executables. This helps protect against a broader range of known and new viruses, reducing the chances of a virus infection on the user’s computer.
    Real-Time File Protection. All individual files, catalogs and disks can be scanned for viruses or, to cut down on scan times, Active Virus Shield allows users to focus attention only on critical areas of the operating system. In either case, Active Virus Shield serves as a watch-dog, continuously monitoring and helping to protect files. Active Virus Shield can also scan faster by scanning only new and changed files.
    Email Protection. Active Virus Shield supports most e-mail clients (e.g POP3, IMAP or NNTP) to scan incoming email and SMTP protocol to scan outgoing mail. For popular mail programs, like Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Outlook Express, plug-ins and routines for treatment of viruses in email databases are also available.
    Automatic Hourly Updates. Active Virus Shield checks for available updates every hour which helps to ensure the product is up to date with the latest features and virus signatures
    Simple And Easy To Use. Active Virus Shield can be installed and set up in a matter of minutes, and the context sensitive help enables users to understand the finer points of the application’s settings. Moreover, the program regularly notifies users of its current protection status and gives recommendations for dealing with difficult situations.
    Runs Without Slowing Down Computer. Active Virus Shield utilizes sophisticated technology to optimally share processing power with other applications, allowing users to continue other tasks while scanning for viruses with little impact on the speed of their computer. During times of increased user activity, Active Virus Shield gives more resources and computer processing power to the user to ensure that virus scans do not slow down other activities.
    Small Frequent Updates. Download updates are relatively small (usually 10 Kbs or less) and ensure that the software is quickly updated with the most current virus information. Active Virus Shield can check for available updates every hour which helps to ensure the product is up to date with the latest features and virus signatures
    Optimized For Laptops. Active Virus Shield offers a number of advantages for users of laptops based on Intel Centrino mobile technology. The program has also been optimized for use on computers with Intel processors that support HT technology.

    Just a heads up. This anti-virus solution is somewhat slow. It's not, however, as deathly slow as Norton or McAfee. I installed it on one of my client's computers, but found that the free version of AVG is much quicker at scanning.
