    "Still good in terms of security."

    April 3, 2013  |   By shayne255


    I remember when I used this antivirus on my old gateway computer that was 10 years old and never had any bad malware on it. When I install it love the look of it and the feel of it. It updates regularly on a daily basis and the best thing of all it does not need so many processes running like AVG or Avast. It does not have any web plugins unless you choose to install the toolbar that comes in the install which is optional. I always recommend this to anyone who is trying dodge the crap that comes onto computers these days.


    I don't have any complaints on this product. I don't know why people complain about this product its free unless you choose to go to the paid versions and yes I know the pop ups are annoying at times but the security is pretty sweet in my opinion. Never had any malware issues on my computers.


    I recommend this still to a lot of people yea I know some on here might not like it but I have never had any problems with it and the performance is great on a netbook.
