Wondershare Time Freeze is a free internet security tool that offers computer protection from viruses and malware. It lets you password protect folders and also lock them with folder protection feature.
Whenever you browse the internet from your computer, your PC has the risk of getting infected by viruses, spyware, Trojans and other malicious threats.It is in fact impossible to safely browse the internet, unless you have an effective anti-virus and anti-spyware software installed on your PC.
Wondershare Time Freeze is a free internet security tool that offers computer protection from viruses and malware. This pro tool was earlier available for a price of 39 USD, but Wondershare has now decided to make this available as a free tool.
Unlike the traditional antivirus software which offers internet security by constantly monitoring what is downloaded, Wondershare Time Freeze provides security to the entire PC by providing a virtual environment to run applications and surf the internet! Thus, none of them are allowed to interact with your PC and all traces of viruses or malware if any will disappear after rebooting your computer, unless you choose to save the changes to your computer.
Wondershare Time Freeze is an excellent tool to use along with your other antivirus and anti-spyware software.The moment you launch it and enable computer Protection, a virtual environment is created and all operations take place in this environment, from there on.You can enable “System Protection” by dragging the button at the bottom of the tab interface to “On”. Everything, including your downloads, is saved in this virtual environment.To save them to your PC, simply drag the button to “Off”. All the data in the virtual environment will then be transferred to the computer system.
But it would have been even better if Wondershare Time Freeze lets users download only the files he choose and not everything from the virtual environment.
Wondershare Time Freeze is not only an internet security tool offering computer protection, but it also functions like a good folder protection tool. There are two modes for protecting folders. While “Mode 1” prohibit others from accessing the protected folders. “Mode 2” lets others open the protected folder but prohibit them from changing any files. These options are available under “Folder Protection Settings” in “Settings” tab. You can also password protect folders (lock folders) by clicking the “Password” button. When you disable the protection or close this program, the program will ask you to enter the password.
You may choose all the appropriate settings in “settings” tab before you enable folder protection in the “Folder Protection” tab, by sliding the button to “On”.You may add the folders that you want to protect by clicking the “Add” button and browsing and selecting the folder you want to protect. It would however be good if the tool can let us select multiple folders in one “Add”.
Free download Wondershare Time Freeze from here and enjoy the free internet security and folder protection tool! It works on windows 7, Vista and XP.
