How does Abtrusion Protector protect my computer?

Abtrusion Protector protects your computer by keeping track of all the executable files (applications, OCX controls, dynamic link libraries, drivers etc.) that are installed on your computer. Whenever the operating system tries to load a piece of software, Abtrusion Protector first verifies that the file is allowed. If the file is not recognized or is not allowed to run, Abtrusion Protector prevents the operating system from loading it.

In the vast majority of hacker attacks or viruses, an executable file is sent to the target computer, and the computer or user is then tricked into running it. Abtrusion Protector prevents this.
