In early November, PC Tools -- an Australian based Antivirus and PC performance and protection tools development and research company -- announced that they are releasing their products into the New Zealand market for sale.
PC Tools, who are a Symantec owned brand, have been developing products for over 12 years. With their release in New Zealand, they are making their entire product portfolio available for purchase. The products on offer are split into two categories, one which focuses on Security, and one which focuses on PC Performance.
The security products, which focus on the immediate protection of the PC include "Spyware Doctor" which is available with and without antivirus, as well as PC Tools' main Antivirus product, "PC Tools Internet Security." AVTest.org tested the product and the 2011 suite of protection products has a 100% detection rate of infections, as well as a clean rate of 100% in real world malware blocking and removal.
The performance range features "Registry Mechanic" for repairing issues with the registry on PC's, and the "PC Tools Performance Toolkit." According to PC Tools, independent testing by Passmark found that the performance products "improve the experience of Windows 7, XP and Vista Users" by reducing boot time and speeding up overall performance.
Neowin has six 1 year licenses to give away for PC Tools Internet Security and PC Tools Performance Toolkit, to celebrate the launch of PC Tools in New Zealand.
