ArmorWall review

ArmorWall – a security tool that fails to identify computer infections

ArmorWall is advertised as an internet firewall and spyware remover. You could purchase it on the website, which belongs to Web Site Traffic Builder, Inc. However, we discovered another site –, which sells the same-looking firewall with integrated spyware remover called Armor2net. It appears that the article's culprit is based on Armor2net or vice versa.

name ArmorWall
Type Antispyware tool and firewall
Claims This software is advertised as a useful addition to your PC that will protect it against various malware
Issues Tested free version is unable to identify well-known infections due to outdated virus database which can't be updated
Verdict Windows users should look for another security software as the free version of this antispyware tool could miss a potentially hazardous infection

We have downloaded a trial version of this software and gave it a try on a crispy clean computer system. The security application did not find any spyware or malware, meaning it doesn't show false-positive or exaggerated virus scan results to push users to purchase its paid version of the application.

However, on a computer infected with adware, spyware, and browser hijackers, it also didn't discover any threats. That raises some red flags as a proper AV tool must identify well-known infections. The free version of ArmorWall doesn't include an update function and comes with an outdated spyware definition database, released way back in October 2003.

That makes the free version pretty much useless. Thus our ruling is that this software cannot protect your computer from various cyber threats lurking on the internet, and thus it shouldn't be downloaded or used.
