5. Returning to the toolbar, select the Protection Activity icon to be notified of any potential threats that have occurred during your time online. These include suspicious sites, spyware- or virus-infected downloads and potentially dangerous data transfers that are stored in the temporary files.

6. If you want to check whether a particular website is safe, click the Site Status icon. As well as a basic thumbs-up or -down rating, ForceField displays information such as when it was registered.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
