Many of our readers might recall that we had spoken of the ‘Windows 10 upgrade’ release and its compatibility with Quick Heal in an earlier blog post.

It is also capable of blocking access to phishing and fraudulent websites, defending the PC against spyware, adware, keyloggers and riskware, ensuring maximum protection when surfing the web by confining all activities in a browser sandbox, as well as restricting access to specific websites and scheduling Internet access for children via a parental control module.

PC Tuner is a separate utility part of the whole package, which gives users the possibility of tweaking Windows and boosting its performance levels by cleaning up the disk, registry and browser traces, as well as defragmenting the registry.

By default, the Quick Heal products are configured to automatically download and update the virus definitions, provided the computer is connected to the Internet.

However, it might happen that the Internet connection is not available.

Although not mentioned in the setup, it is automatically turned on after installation.
