Another Computer Program to Fight Identity Theft

Security Task Manager Can Help Deter Identity Theft

As most of you know, I believe you can never be too careful when it comes to the security of one’s computer. After all, our computers usually hold sensitive information like our name, birth date, social security number and credit card numbers. This information is exactly what criminals need to commit identity theft. It would only make sense that we should take measures to protect that information. While I always said a combination of an effective antivirus program, anti-spyware program and a firewall provides adequate protection, today I was proven wrong.

A New Find

My computer is protected with a firewall, an antivirus program and an anti-spyware program. I thought I was well protected from malicious software. Then the other day my computer started acting strangely and running slowly. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what was causing the problem so I began looking at my task manager to see what programs were running. Not knowing what else to do, I began running a Google search on every process running on my system to see if it was legit. That was when I came across a great new find.

There is a Security Task Manager program available from Neuber Software. This program scans all of the processes, applications and services running on your system and gives you an analysis of each and every one, letting you know which ones look dangerous and/or suspicious. After running the program, I found that my computer was infected with two malware programs that weren’t caught by any of my computer’s installed security measures. I was quite surprised.

Nothing to Lose

If you’re worried about stealth programs on your computer leading to identity theft, I highly suggest trying out this Security Task Manager program. There is a free trial so you don’t have a pay a penny until you decide whether or not you want to purchase it. If you do decide to purchase the program, it’s very affordable at a price of $29.

Even if you have no interest in purchasing the program, I suggest downloading the free version and seeing exactly what’s going on in your system.
