Any computers can run this security software. It’s backward compatible, even Pentium 4 can handle this. When it comes to Operating System it can support Windows 2003, 2008, XP, Vista and Windows 7. I haven’t tried it yet on Windows 8.
My view on USB Disk Security
Personally, I’ve been using this for almost three years now. It does a good job in stopping autorun viruses, preventing it from multiplying inside my PC. The extra features like the Data Protection and System tools are of great help in protecting my PC extra miles. However, there are some viruses that it can’t detect, one of it is the shortcut virus, but both NOD32 and Malwarebytes caught it.
USB Disk Security isn’t an antivirus alternative because it’s limited to autorun viruses, some trojans are able to break in. It’s more on complimentary security feature. Therefore, in conclusion, get USB Disk Security as your first line of defense. Then, a good antivirus such as Eset, Avira or avast, plus it with Malwarebytes to complete your computer’s 3 lines of defense.
