Reviewing Software for your PC 2014

Microsoft Windows Defender 2014

The Windows Defender Software is pre-installed in all Windows 8 PCs. Microsoft owns this anti-virus software. Microsoft Windows Defender is the successor to both Microsoft Security Essentials and Microsoft Anti-Spyware. The former is an optional anti-virus software for users of Windows XP, Windows 7 and Vista.

Like all other anti-virus software that come free of cost, real-time security is offered by Windows Defender and it alerts the user when it finds that malware is getting installed on the computer on its own. Besides that, Windows Defender has limited anti-virus features and nothing unique or substantial to offer.

Scans can be automatically scheduled in Windows Defender; however you may not find this option on the program interface. For this, you have to access the computer settings and get to the Task Scheduler under Administrative Tools.

Bitdefender Total Security 2015

Bitdefender Total Security 2015 is the software to look out for. It combines flawless security features with several other elements such as distinct profile settings for best use of your PC resources. This brilliant software is well-suited for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, Windows XP and Vista.

During the running of the Bitdefender Total Security 2015, the user can locate a tiny circle-shaped widget at the bottom right side of the screen. If your PC is secure, it shows a green colored check-mark. You will see a yellow colored exclamation in case  any issues are detected. A red colored X indicates a major problem.

There is no noticeable change in the widget from the earlier editions. The main interface starts when you click on the center. This main interface has undergone a makeover in the latest Bitdefender Total Security 2015.

Parallels Version 10: Run Windows on Mac

Irrespective of whether you use a PC or a Mac, your issues regarding program compatibility can be handled using Parallels. This well-known software allows you to use a Windows program on your Mac and the other way around. The launch of the Parallels Desktop 10 makes this experience even better.

The developers of Parallels Desktop 10 say that the latest version speeds up the opening of Windows documents by almost 48 percent. In addition to this there is a 50 percent increase in the speed at which Office 2013 applications are launched. The software also takes up less memory space and power and enhances the battery life to a great extent.

Try and experience the working of the above software via laptop rentals and make your work safer and smoother.
