Announcing GameGuard Anti-Virus Protection

Posted on Thu, 16 Feb 2012 17:14:45 GMT

Your flight simulator’s performance can be affected by your anti-virus software. But, if you don’t install an anti-virus software on your computer, you expose yourself to possible attacks. If you want to maintain the performance of your flight simulator while also protecting your computer, GameGuard might be just what you need.

The creators of GameGuard Anti-Virus Protection used the best available in the industry, namely the industry-leading and trusted virus protection engine from BitDefender. They then fine-tuned it to create GameGuard, an application that offers features and performance that flight simmers need.

With GameGuard Anti-Virus Protection on your computer, you will be fully protected when you download flight simulation add-ons. This means you don’t have to worry about downloading malicious software that will destroy the programs, documents and files you have on your computer, or expose your personal information.

GameGuard’s Exclusive Game-Mode maintains the frame rates you want, and you don’t have to sacrifice your computer security.

It can be very frustrating and disappointing to invest in the most recent hardware for your personal computer only to see it slowed down by your virus software. It can be equally frustrating to spend a lot of time and money downloading content, and then needing to reformat your computer because of a virus attack.

Key features for GameGuard are as follows:

  • Offers protection against viruses and other malware using the best technology available in the industry
  • Monitors and prevents spyware threats at all times
  • Has advanced, proactive detection techniques which block unknown viruses
  • Detects and removes hidden threats known as rootkits

GameGuard provides security services for flight simulators as well as online game companies and portal sites to block nasty applications and virus attacks. GameGuard is used in a wide range of online games. The tool auto-updates itself and it changes as new threats surface.

Download iconDon't forget... We have a huge selection (over 24,000 files) of free mods and add-ons for FSX, P3D & X-Plane in the file library.  Files include aircraft, scenery, and utilities  All are free-to-download and use - you don't even need to register.  Browse on down to the file library here.
