Safe browsing with Sunbelt Software ClearCloud

To get infected by viruses or malware, you don’t even need to visit a malicious website, clicking a link or advertisement from reputed sites like Facebook, YouTube, or clicking a link in an email or auto updating a program sometimes leads to that.

Yes, your Antivirus software can defend against most malicious programs from installing and running on your PC, but what about if can you prevent even getting this program in the first place?

Sunbelt Software’s ClearCloud can do that. ClearCloud (beta) is a DNS service that can filters out malicious websites.

It will check every website address your computer is trying to access, whether you’re browsing the internet, clicking a link in an email, or a program trying to access internet and block if anything went wrong.

If you’re interested just replace your current DNS server to ClearCloud
- Preferred DNS server: 74.118.212.1

- Alternate DNS server: 74.118.212.2

More details and how to implement this on your Windows 7/Vista and XP systems available here.
