The computer system has become an essential gadget in our daily life. Bills payment, online shopping, online studies, online jobs, research and many other tasks are being accomplished using computers. But at any time, all these tasks can get interrupted if the system catch viruses, isn’t it? Quick Heal Technologies have developed a program that not only remove viruses, but also gives total security to your computer system from all kinds of threats that can affect its overall performance. Quick Heal Total Security protects your system from internet or network-based potential malicious files.

As I’m a work from home mom, I had to make many internet downloads. Sometimes, this caused my system to go in “hanging” mode because of the download of harmful files. My child also would download several games playing websites, not getting happy with all those game CDs and video games in stock. Installing a ‘security’ program was vital for me that ended up in Quick Heal Total Security.

Quick Heal’s renowned DNAScan Technology detects all kinds of new and unknown viruses, worms, trojans, spywares and other threats and shields your system. Minimum system resources are utilized, thereby providing complete protection without slowing it down.
