Largest Chinese security vendor Qihoo (360 Security) has finally released a stripped down version of their flagship product 360 Total Security. It’s called 360 Total Security Essentials and it has all the malware protection goodies found in the full suite, they’ve just removed all the unnecessary extras like registry cleaner, junk file cleaner, file shredder and so on. It’s not a pure clean anti-malware program without the extra fat. Which is lovely. I really liked this app, but allt he stuff I didn’t need was really getting in the way and it was annoying. But not anymore. Hurray! 🙂
360 Total Security is powered by their own Cloud scanner and Heuristics as well as with optional AVIRA and BitDefender scan engines. It has also scored incredibly well in several latest malware tests. Did I mention it’s completely free? Yup, it will not cost you a single cent!
