PLEASANTON, CA - June 28, 2005 - Avanquest Software, a global developer and
publisher of mobility, productivity and utilities software, today released VCOM's
SystemSuite Professional 6, the newest version of the award-winning VCOM all-in-one
collection of PC diagnostics, repair, maintenance, security and protection tools.
New to this version of SystemSuite is a continuous anti-spyware scanning operation
that detects and removes performance-robbing and malicious programs that may have
been deposited while users surf the Web, including spyware, Adware, hack tools and
password cracking applications. SystemSuite 6 also adds an improved anti-virus
detection and removal. It now locates and removes more viruses than ever. It also
provides specific details on each virus before eliminating it from the PC.
One of the hallmarks of the SystemSuite series is the award-winning design which
brings all utility features together in an easy-to-use interface, eliminating the
need to buy and install each tool separately. System diagnostic tools test and
report problems with hardware including USB, Firewire, network and DVD drives. Also
in SystemSuite 6 is VCOM's SecurErase, a feature that allows users to completely
erase partitions or hard drives for recycling purposes. In addition, SystemSuite 6
features Recovery Commander™, an advanced data recovery system that can correct for
major system file damage. As a bonus SystemSuite includes PowerDesk 5, VCOM's
award-winning file manager.
"SystemSuite Professional 6 is, by far, the most comprehensive utility of its kind,
providing the total solution for safeguarding the user?s hardware, optimizing PC
performance and eliminating security threats," noted Frank van Gilluwe, president,
Avanquest Software Utility Products. "We designed it for PC users who today more
than ever need a way to maintain and protect the PC--and keeps it operating like new."
SystemSuite 6 features more than 50 powerful tools designed to work on all of today's
Windows operating systems. Its maintenance operations enable users to defragment their
hard drive, fix the Windows registry and diagnose hardware troubles. Other powerful
tools included in the SystemSuite 6 package are:
Fix Utilities: A performance optimization tool that speeds program launch times,
diagnoses and fixes problems and provides "early warning" of hard drive problems;
AutoSave: This "set it and forget it" real-time data backup tool automatically backs
up the user's data while the users works;
VCOM Anti-Spam: Recognizes and eliminates spam to improve productivity and eliminate
threats from messages containing malicious code; and
GhostSurf Privacy Control: Allows the user to surf the web anonymously without the
worry of Internet activity being tracked or watched.
