    "Lags behind the rest, slows computers majorly."

    December 21, 2008  |   By Diablosblizz

    Pros

    Ease of use - everything in one easy page

    Cons

    Pretty much a resource hog, doesn't really protect that much. ESET Antivirus is much better for basically the same price. No point in spending money on something that won't protect your personal information.

    Summary

    Had this installed on a laptop which met the recommended and bypassed them, yet the computer lagged behind. Took me 10 minutes to get the thing started, and then I uninstalled it immediately. Won't recommend this to ANYBODY, if you need free go with Avast or AntiVir, or just go buy Kaspersky or NOD32, well worth the money.
