More Trouble Than Any Virus,
This review is from: CA Internet Security Suite Plus 2010 1 year 3 User UK (PC CD) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have a new HP Laptop (Model G61) with Windows 7 64bit, 4gigs of RAM.
Like many machines it came pre installed with Norton.
I am not a fan of that and it was only the 2009 edition so this product seemed a good idea.
As with any A/V program I uninstalled the old Norton first and installed this product.
That is where everything started to go wrong.
On first boot up the machine took 15 minutes before it got to the point where it played the Windows jingle.
The machine was like a dog with one process using 50% of CPU power.
I managed to kill this process in the task manager and then ran the product update option.
After the product updated and rebooted it did indeed work better but not for long.
Internet explorer 8 would say it had to close on just the google search page. It would then re-load and say the same thing again.
From the control panel I disabled the CA "Add-Ons" and all was well again.
I tried these again with mixed results, sometimes IE worked other times it had to recover.
Not I'm afarid the end of the saga as today on startup everytime I would get the famous Blue Screen Of Death and always it would refer to kmxfilter.sys.
Guess what, kmxfilter.sys is part of this product.
Tried to uninstall this wonderful app in safe mode but that does not work so resorted to renaming kmxfilter.sys to kmxfilter.bad in c:\windows\system32\drivers
Machine then booted okay in normal mode giving me the chance to uninstall this program.
I have not looked at any other reviews of this program but if I was you I would select another product.
