Online Armor++ Review

Update: The Online Armor website and program are no longer available.

Online Armor++ is an all in one Internet security suite that retails for $59.99. It offers all the security modules one would expect for a security suite including a software firewall, antivirus and antimalware protection or email protection.

Online Armor++ displays a safety check wizard after installation which will scan the computer system make sure that no malicious software is already on the system and to assess those programs that are deemed trustworthy.

You can either let Online Armor handle the assessment or select to be the one in control to fix issues that are found during the scan with the latter option recommended by the security software and us as you have more control over the process.

The wizard will scan the running processes, start menu items, startup objects, Internet Explorer extensions and system files during that initial scan. This can can take a while depending on the amount of files on the computer system.

Online Armor++ will display a list of programs that it was not able to identify giving the user the option to allow or block those programs and entries. It is possible to block or allow only some of the programs and leave the rest to the software.

A restart is required after that initial customization. The program interface is simplistic but well organized with menus on the left side that display system status information and links to the program modules like managing autostart entries, Internet Explorer add-ons, the hosts file and of course the firewall and antivirus modules.

All Online Armor++ features:

* Online Banking Mode

Online Armor ++ is a full Internet Security Suite capable of protecting even the most demanding users. Its malware protection is just outstanding as it incorporates two very important segments, Emsi Software and Ikarus scanning technology and their own very powerful and effective HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System).

It is extremely easy to manage and the online help file won't leave you with an unanswered question. From the beginning, it is easy to configure, the learning mode and OASIS database contributing immensely to guaranteeing you this level of comfort.

OASIS is not fully matured and there are plenty of popular applications that are not in the list. However, users have the possibility to contribute to expanding the database by anonymous sending of information to the developer.

Installation:

The Online Armor download needs to be extracted on the local computer system. The package contains a setup.exe to start the installation and a readme that contains the registration information. We were asked if we wanted to install Software Informer at the beginning of the installation which we denied. Installation went on smoothly afterwards.

A registration at the company website is required before the installation can be completed as a license key needs to be filled in at the end of the installation with no option to skip that process other than to cancel the installation.

The Tallemu website was slow and displayed several timeouts before we were able to register the account. Users need to "buy" the Online Armor++ Single Edition which is today offered for $0.

The promo code GOTD-813-EMU needs to be entered during checkout to reduce the normal price of Online Armor++ to $0.

New customers need to fill out a registration form with a valid email address as the license key will be send to that email address.

Online Armor++ can be downloaded for free today at the giveaway of the day website. The developer's website is available here.

    Presently, the response on the GoTD site is that it is a full commercial license, with all the privileges included.
    Go figure.
