STOPzilla is an all-encompassing, powerful program that provides real time protection against malware and spyware.
While most of the world seems content with using free anti-virus software, many times free programs do not provide real time protection and may only pick up on malware and spyware after your machine is infected. STOPzilla is an antivirus program that works as a preventative measure, so that your computer stays protected at all times.
There are a bunch of great, easy-to-use features in STOPzilla, like a scheduler for scans and adjustments for its built-in popup blocker. Once you're done with the initial setup for STOPzilla, you can just forget about it and have it run in the background.
Performance wise, STOPzilla took a very long time doing an initial full scan of our computer, taking the whole morning. Luckily there are options for a "quick scan" and "intelligent scan." It's also nice to see a chart of what is being scanned in each mode.
Overall, STOPzilla is a great anti malware and spyware software. It's easy to use and provides real time protection. We only wish full scans were quicker.
