Google Pack adds antivirus and spyware removal software
Posted on 28-Mar-2007 08:10. | Tags Filed under: News.



Google has announced some additions to the Google Pack, a collection of free software available for any user of Windows-based PCs. The updated software pack now delivers new security options and a fresh way to display photos.

Symantec Norton Security Scan is one of the new security features in the Google Pack. Users get basic virus protection, featuring automatic security updates and scheduled scanning, all without a subscription fee.

For spyware problems Google Pack brings the PC Tools Spyware Doctor Starter Edition, an exclusive version of the anti-spyware and anti-malware utility including scheduled scanning, threat removal, limited active protection and free automatic updates.

Google has also updated the Google Photos Screensaver, turning it into a digital picture frame that displays the latest photos from friends, family, and favorite photographers. Users can show images from their computer, Picasa Web Albums, or photo feeds from other photo-sharing sites.

The Google Updater, included in the Google Pack, keeps them up to date so users don't need to worry about missing out on new features. Google Pack Beta is available in 12 languages, runs on Window XP and Vista, and supports Internet Explorer 6.0 and Firefox 1.0 and higher.
