Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
CA is a name that is a powerhouse in security so I approached using this product with positive impressions. Unfortunately this didn't last.

I installed this product onto a system with a Core 2 Quad processor, Windows 7 Pro, 4GB of memory and plenty of hard disk. That system promptly died a horrible death, needing a low level format of the system disk and then restoring from an image that Windows 7 created. Never mind, I think this may have just been coincidence. Following that I then uninstalled the existing trouble-free antivirus product that was already on there and gave CA Internet Security another chance.

What followed was a couple of days where the firewall was constantly switching itself on and off. A firewall that doesn't work is as much use as a condom with the end cut off, and this seemed to happen regularly. Pushing the button that Windows 7 pops up did not seem to do anything and a reboot was often required to clear the alert message and re-enable the firewall.

This product is also not exactly the most flexible or intuitive to use I have ever come across. The home screen is a pretty flash interface with revolving boxes, but there doesn't seem any clear way in which a first time user can start effectively changing options such as update schedules and firewall exceptions. They are presumably there, just not easy to find and when you do dig in they would be useless as the firewall keeps turning itself off! There was also a somewhat unsettling lag between clicking on the icon and anything happening, which is often a sign of a program that isn't quite installed or working properly in a system that is otherwise stable.

I eventually decided that CA hasn't yet managed to develop a product that sits well with my system, and gave up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Walk away... 31 Mar 2010
By marcoscu TOP 500 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
CA security products have been well received in the past and I was looking forward to trying this one out. I was surprised to see it get such a poor write up from a fellow reviewer here on Amazon. But then I tried it for myself.

Firstly, I was unable to get it to install fully on my Windows 7 test machine. Each time it failed when it came to installing one of the key features, the integrated firewall. This is perhaps a phenomenon not unexpected by the software makers as it prompted a custom web page to pop up advising me to contact them. Nevertheless I decided to carry on with the install and see what the other components had to offer.

As soon as I installed it and even after selecting the demo mode option it continued to remind me that my trial version was about to expire (this is on day one of the install). I tried an initial security scan but had to quit it after it seemed to go on endlessly and with no indication of any progress. It offers a comprehensive set of features: anti-malware, firewall, phishing as well as the bonus of backup and tools to facilitate migrating to a new PC (a necessary consequence for users of this product, I suspect). The interface is pleasant enough but changing user options does not seem to be very intuitive. A common problem for security software is a tendency to slow down the PC on which they are installed but this I did not notice with the CA suite. However, given the problems I had experienced so far and those still to come I would find it difficult to have confidence in how well protected I would be.

After playing around with the software the time came to uninstall it and then the real fun started. Several attempts to remove the suite with the built in uninstaller failed as did using the Windows Uninstall control panel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better Luck in 2011? 15 April 2010
By Sam D
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Last year's security suite from CA was something a shoddy stitch-work of mediocre security tools. CA seemingly having noticed that common criticism themselves have improved things in part and hired experts to devise an attractive and thoroughly integrated interface. CA Internet Security Suite Plus 2010 is visually stunning. Unfortunately though, its beauty remains only skin deep.

On the list of positives, components are fully integrated into a new user-centric interface. The firewall stealths all ports and resists direct attack by malware and it's also very good at blocking rootkit installation. Further to this, it rates websites and links and, if it's an issue for you, seems to have good parental control.

In addition to that however, it slows system performance, default settings allow internet access for unknown programs and yet can silently block good programs. The spam filter is non-functional until trained and the aforementioned site-rating all too often marks valid sites as risky.

The bottom line is that, while CA have completely overhauled their suite's user interface and whilst the result is unique, stunning and user-friendly, the security components housed in that pretty shell are hardly changed. They're still second-rate and the suite's default settings can actually cause serious trouble for users. Perhaps 2011 will do the trick.

After a long life with Norton, McAfee and Kaspersky internet protection CA Internet Security was up to high standard comparisons. It didn't fall anywhere near the mark. The interface is not easy to navigate and made simple tasks very complicated. I've also had problems similar to other reviewers with the Firewall switching on/off causing my Laptop to crash. I've uninstalled this now and I'm still clearing up the mess it's made. This product really should not be on the shelf if it can't do a basic job.
