ThreatFire must be installed on a clean PC, so the program's installer scanned our PC to make sure we had no viruses, rootkits, Trojans, or other hidden threats. ThreatFire's mission is to serve as one of four legs of a comprehensive PC security regime, so the setup wizard also verified that we had an adequate firewall as well as protection from viruses and spyware. Once our system received a clean bill of health, ThreatFire's interesting interface opened with the Worldwide Detection tab displayed on the main Security Status page, where the program listed the latest detected threats and pinpointed outbreaks on a world map. Clicking Protection Statistics displayed ThreatFire's log data for our system. ThreatFire offers plenty of options, including exclusion lists, advanced rules settings, default actions, and interface languages.
