4.0 out of 5 stars A Marvelous piece of software, 26 Feb. 2009
This review is from: BullGuard Internet Security version 8.5, 3 user license, 1 year subscription (PC) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Usually I would open one of my reviews with a clever remarks of some sort. As it is I am aiming to keep this review simple and to the point. In a nutshell - I am very impressed by the Bullguard programme.

While I cannot claim to understand the underlying computer principles of the programme - its accessibility in terms of being able to monitor the functions of the computer is absolutely marvelous. I have had a few months now to search around the control panel - doing quick and indepth virus scans, updates and the like. One aspect I cannot comment on is the backup function.

Many would freak out at having found a virus trying to creep its way into your computer - I was actually quite excited watching Bullguard go to work at a very fast and efficient manner that did not interupt my work. A special note goes to the effectiveness of the firewall. I previously used the Windows Firewall - but Bullguard blocks and informs you that it has done so - luckily the programme has picked up two attempts at a port scan - the prelude to a hacker attempt. Both attempts were blocked.

Another point to note is that you can install the programme on 3 PC's using the same account details. My own PC and my mums now has it. As I said previously - the programme usual running does not interupt or slow down the computer. Having previously used the god-awful McAfee programme which blocked and questioned everything - this is quite a plus point for me.

A great piece of software that is functional, accessible and does not slow down the PC. Like a good British Bulldog - any hacker or virus that tries to get past the gate - is only likely to get a good bite for their troubles.

UPDATE: Since the installation of the software - by computer has been prone to seizing up when surfing the web. There was no such problems before BullGuard. Perhaps a problem to keep in mind?
