Prevent Windows Slowdown with System Mechanic

Online Privacy Protection with Privacy Guardian
Online privacy protection thwarts browser fingerprinting scripts by scrambling the data they rely upon to gain vast amounts of personal information about you.
Imagine being denied credit because a company has secretly collected data, however out of context, that suggests you are an irresponsible shopper. That is just one of the many ways personal data collected online can be used against you.
Privacy Guardian works to help protect you from targeted ads, identity theft, fraud and invasion of privacy. Surf privately and secure your browsers for true online privacy.
Safe, Simple Password Security with ByePass
ByePass simplifies your digital life while securing it. ByePass is a platform-agnostic, secure password manager that also helps protect your online purchases.
With ByePass, malicious intermediaries are also thwarted from stealing your credit card info because the numbers are locally encrypted and only deployed as needed to make purchases.
Never again will you need to insecurely type or store passwords and credit cards in your web browser where keyloggers and hackers can steal them.
Block Malware with System Shield
System Shield is a VB100-certified anti-malware solution that deploys both reactive and proactive malware detection strategies.
A reactive strategy detects viruses using published malware signature detection.

Search and Recover deploys powerful technology to retrieve items many other file-recovery products miss. Rescue critical work and cherished memories you thought were lost for good.

New! Disable Cortana virtual assistant
This commonly used feature sends to Microsoft enormous amounts of data related to precisely how you use your computer.

This feature, particularly when the Send my activity history to Microsoft box is also checked, risks exposing unknown quantities of information on how you use the apps and services on your computer.
New! Phishing Detector
This new technology within Privacy Guardian looks to see whether incoming email is from a proxy DNS server, a common indicator of potential phishing attacks as the sender attempts to mask their identifying information, such as true IP address.
