PC Security Test - Verify and improve the strength of your system's security
Review by on
There are many threats lurking on the Internet. Even if you avoid suspicious downloads and double check your downloads, you still need adequate protection. Without it, your computer is vulnerable to any type of malware attack and you will not know the real harm they may cause until you see the effects for yourself. PC Security Test will demonstrate what malware or hacking programs can do to your system, with a series of false (and safe) attacks. The software simulates a number of the worst case scenarios and tests your system's security at the same time.

The package which you need to download is 1.64 Mb large, which should not be a problem for modern day Internet connections. You will have to go through a standard setup process, during which you will not encounter any requirements or complex settings.

The application's various tests are displayed on the left side of the interface and most of them can be started by clicking a single button. If you start the standard test, the software will go through a process that involves four steps. First, it will perform a fictitious attack to activate your security measures. When your protection software reacts, PC Security Test will create a security index and it will provide various tips on improving your system's security. Finally, the software will display the fake infected files automatically. The security test results include information regarding your protection against viruses, spyware and hacking.

The software can also test your email account's security measures. After providing your email address and SMTP server, PC Security Test will send you a fake virus, so you can see how your account's security reacts. Another feature will verify if your browser is properly configured to prevent the execution of unsigned ActiveX controls. The software's Proof mode contains a number of tests which simulate the effects of malware. PC Security Test will demonstrate that malicious programs can acquire your personal information. If you click a button to perform this specific test, the software will display a sample of details that may be collected, including your IP and MAC addresses, your Windows license key and the last visited web site.

Other tests will simulate virus effects, by launching or closing applications, taking control over your mouse or hardware or displaying fake system messages. PC Security Test also displays what personal information is regularly saved on a computer and your opened ports. Additionally, it includes a quizz and an evaluation. They involve questions with multiple answers. When you click an answer, the application will tell you if you are right or wrong and why.

Pros:
PC Security Test is like a vaccine for your computer. It uses fake virus attacks to activate and test your security measures. The tests are completely safe. The "viruses" are actually harmless files, with EICAR signatures. The software displays detailed information regarding how it will test your system, what viruses can do and how they affect your computer. Basically, it educates users on the importance of antivirus protection. Furthermore, the application is completely free.

Cons:
Although additional tests would be in order, the software does not have real drawbacks.

PC Security Test will help you see the importance of protection software. It will show you why you need adequate protection against malicious programs, the weaknesses of your security measures and how you can improve them.
