computer for changes, immediately notifying you when a change is
made to confirm you want to keep or reject the change. This saves

Desktop Armor improves your web browsing by blocking unwanted popup
windows using smart checks to automatically show the windows you
want, but block the advertisements you don't want. (And lets you

tags that are invisibly included on web pages to track you.
Desktop Armor has tools to easily look at all the programs that

being used on your hard drives, and more!
