PreEmpt leads a new category of computer security called Desktop Intrusion Prevention. Using an Adaptive Desktop Defense technology PreEmpt fundamentally changes the way Windows computers are secured. By blocking the underlying security vulnerabilities in Windows itself, PreEmpt closes the openings that attackers use to damage and hijack your computer. Traditional anti-virus and anti-spyware tools are focused on detecting and clean up your PC after the damage has been done and your computer is hopelessly infected. PreEmpt prevents installed spyware and malware from being able to exploit your computer. Version 126.96.36.199 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
