Security programs exist to help keep your account details and personal information safe. We recommend that you run regular scans to make sure your computer is secure.

Antivirus

Viruses are hard to detect, easy to spread, and difficult to remove. They can damage your files, registry, and hardware. The most common way to get a virus is via email or downloaded attachments.

The following are some popular antivirus options for protecting against these threats:

Antivirus Product Free Version or Trial? Free Online Scan?
Avast! Free Unavailable
Kaspersky Trial Available
Microsoft Security Essentials Free Unavailable

Anti-Spyware/Keylogger

Spyware monitors the actions of a computer user and can affect the performance of your computer. This software will attempt to send any gathered information to a host server, which can affect latency or may reduce your internet speed.

To assist your anti-spyware program in finding spyware that targets our games, bring up the login screen and type gibberish into the login fields while the anti-spyware program is running. Ignore these instructions if you are using ComboFix, as you do not want to run any other programs while ComboFix is running.

Anti-Spyware Product Free Version Available?
