PestPatrol is a very effective and easy-to-use security tool that will free you of many headaches, believe me. This software will always watch over your PC safety, staying alert while you enjoy surfing on the web without worries.
Pest Patrol is one of the most effective applications to detect and wipe out all kind of threats like trojans, spyware, adware or piracy tools. All of these are grouped in a single category: "pests".
This software is the perfect complement for your antivirus software, since both together will keep your PC completely clean like the first day, stopping any malicious software.
Of course, all of the above is applicable when you actually buy the software.
The user interface is very understandable, but some nag dialog boxes appear everywere, asking you to buy the product. When you finish a system scan, some items cannot be removed until you buy the software. The same happens when you try to access some features under the advanced settings.
PestPatrol is part of the eTrust Internet Security suite, so you will see two new icons in your system tray.

Review summary


  • Very effective, it detects a lot of items that other products don't


  • If you don't want to go crazy with the messages of the dialog boxes, please register the program!
