PCLive.com Offers Consumers Complete Internet Computer Security Blanket
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa --(Business Wire)-- Despite the proliferation of anti-virus and anti-spyware software, viruses, Trojans, worms, pop-ups and spyware continue to plague consumer PCs. Now a new FREE offering introduced today by PCLive.com wipes out that plague by removing the biggest chink in the armor: outdated PC security.
PCLive Security provides protection against the Internet's top security threats by performing real time scanning and by automatically ensuring that continuous updates occur. The security package also includes a personal firewall and assures that all Microsoft Windows operating system patches are installed as they are released, further assuring up-to-the-minute security.
"People may think that they're safe on the Internet, but they're not," said Dan Gookin, best-selling author of PC for Dummies and well-known PC expert. "Even with all the nifty new security features of Windows Vista, having a product like PCLive Security helps complete the PC protection picture. Not only that, maintenance is a key, yet often overlooked, part of running a computer. The beauty of PCLive Security is that it provides you with the protection and maintenance you need. Plus the price is really incredible!"
PCLive Security protects PCs against the Internet's most malicious threats, including viruses, worms, Trojans, malware and spyware. In addition to being very easy and simple to download, PCLive Security takes on the burden of managing all of your security updates so your computer stays protected and continues to perform the way you want it to. As an additional option, PCLive technicians can even install PCLive Security for you remotely and remove any conflicting security programs for a minimal fee.

"The total economic damage from Internet security threats was $8.43 billion in 2006 according to Consumer Reports," says Robert O'Dell, CEO of SecurityCoverage, Inc. "The problem isn't the security software. It's that consumers find it difficult to renew security subscriptions and manage the updates required to keep protection current. PCLive Security automates the security of PCs so consumers don't have to worry about it anymore. You no longer have to worry about confusing update prompts or emails about your security subscription running out."
"Corporate IT professionals list 'managing the complexity of security' as one of their greatest challenges," added O'Dell. "Imagine the headache PC security causes for the average consumer. PCLive Security makes it easy for PC users to surf the Web, stay in touch with friends, gather information and shop online without worrying about a secure and updated PC. We make sure the computing experience is what it's meant to be: fun, safe and reliable."
