You can create the following settings here.

Process Internet content (HTTP): In the web protection options, you can specify that all HTTP web content is checked for viruses whilst browsing. Infected web content is not run at all and the corresponding pages are not displayed. To set this option, please check Process Internet content (HTTP).

If you do not want to check Internet content, the virus monitor will still of course take action if infected files are executed. That means your system is also protected without checking Internet content as long as the virus monitor is active.

You can also specify certain websites as exceptions if you consider them harmless. For more information please read the section entitled Define exceptions. You can use the Advanced button to create further settings for handling web content.

Phishing protection: With so-called phishing, scammers on the Internet attempt to redirect customers of a particular bank or shop to fake websites in order to steal their data there. Activating the phishing protection is highly recommended.

Send addresses of infected websites Through this function you can automatically – and anonymously of course – report websites that are deemed unsafe by the software. This enables you to optimise security for all users.

Process Instant Messaging content: Since viruses and other malware can also be spread via Instant Messaging tools, the software can also prevent infected data being displayed and downloaded in advance here. If your Instant Messaging applications do not run via the default port numbers, please go to Advanced to enter the relevant ports.

Integrating the Messenger application: If you use Microsoft Messenger or Trillian, you can set the checkmark for the respective program to define a context menu in which you can directly check suspicious files for viruses.
