Security icon: Your G Data software will permanently protect your computer against malware and attacks. An icon in the computer's taskbar tells you as soon as the software considers intervention by the user to be necessary. By right-clicking on the icon, you can open the G Data program interface.


Fast check: The fast check enables you to easily check files without having to launch the software at all. Just use your mouse to select the files or folders in e.g. Windows Explorer. Now right-click and select Check for viruses in the dialogue window displayed. The affected files will now be automatically scanned for viruses.

G DataShredder: If you have selected the shredder during installation (not integrated with G Data AntiVirus), you will see the icon for this on your desktop. Data you move to the shredder will be removed in such a way that it cannot be restored, even using professional data recovery tools.


Your computer will start differently than usual after installing the software: if the computer does not automatically launch Microsoft Windows after installing the software and rebooting, it may be that the program CD is still in the drive. Simply remove the CD and your computer will restart as normal. You can find more information on this in the online help in the section entitled Boot scan.
