USB Malware Protection Helps to Keep Your Computer Safe

By: Jonathan J Clarke


USB malware is becoming an increasingly common problem, and contrary to popular belief, not all malicious software comes directly from the Internet. In order to safeguard your computer from potential security threats from USB drives such as pen drives and external hard drives, you should consider using USB virus protection. The ultimate solution for the job is SoftDigi Smart USB, a USB vaccine tool which will safely disable USB autorun and provide USB malware protection to ensure that no malicious code manages to get from a USB drive onto your computer. The result is a safer and more secure computer and peace of mind. Exceptionally easy to use, Smart USB also provides error-checking facilities and a utility for securely formatting USB drives with various file systems.

Customizable and User-Friendly

Smart USB is a USB virus protection program made with ease of use in mind. It features a highly customizable and user-friendly interface to help minimize the learning curve and help tailor the program to suit your individual requirements. The device manager provides a conveniently centralized location where you can manage all of your USB devices, and it is highly informative, providing you with constant status updates as well as everything else you need to know about the USB devices connected to your computer. The USB vaccine tool does much of the hard work for you, however, since it monitors your devices in real time in order to protect your computer from any potential threats which could come from the connected drives. Additionally, you can even restore any changes produced by security threats on USB drives so that you can keep your computer in excellent working order.

Disable USB Autorun and More

Just like optical disks such as CDs and DVDs are typically configured to launch automatically as soon as you put them in the drive, USB drives are often set to autorun as well. If there is an executable program configured to run automatically when you connect the drive, your computer may be at risk. If this program contains malicious code, you'll end up with malicious software on your computer immediately, but Smart USB will help to ensure that this does not happen, since it will prevent any USB drives from launching automatically unless you give express permission once the program has already made sure that there is nothing potentially harmful on the drive. Other features include the ability to check the USB drive for errors, regardless of whether or not it contains malicious software, and the ability to format drives of various file systems.

USB malware protection has never been easier thanks to this small and simple program. Smart USB will help you to take care of your computer, and it will never slow your computer down either. It runs in the background using minimal system resources, protecting your computer at all times with minimal user intervention required.
