Anti-Virus Helix is a program like many others, that has been developed to protect users against external threats, as well as stopping them and removing them if possible. It detects all kinds of attacking codes like trojans, bots and worms, that once the warning have been activated, can be eliminated or moved into quarantine.
Helix analyzes the incoming and outgoing emails by integrating into Outlook, a usual place for viruses to attack, placing special emphasis on the protection of personal data and the detection of phishing attempts, that are happening so often as of late.
The protection that Anti-Virus Helix offers also detects Rootkits and prevents the installation of code from malicious websites, making sure that browsing the Internet doesn't become a problem.
Anti-Virus Helix can carry out complete or partial scans of the system at the user's request or be scheduled to perform them at specific times of the day, it uses few system resources and is capable of updating thanks to the Lavasoft database.
