"BG10 ROCKS a good AV choice."

December 07, 2010  |  By MrGoodguy69

 |  Version: BullGuard Antivirus 10

Pros

Firewall and AV scanner work real well. Easy use interface.
BG10 offers a free 24/7 help desk via email,live chat and remote assistance for when you really stuff up your pc.
Its new Inspector for testing for unsafe programs and compatibility issues.

Cons

Runs a little heavy on resources both RAM and CPU.
Seems a little basic and needs better color on/off indicators.

Summary

This is a great product, with features that I would expect from a top line alternative.
NOTE: BG lab has been a world leader in finding and fixing new threats on the net.
I have downloaded programs etc which came up with infections? After uploading them to BG lab, which tests them for you and will let you know if its safe to use the program or delete it.
The live chat and remote assistance are of great help at 3am when you
find you have a problem or virus. 1hr response time or live chat in real time.
This will be on my PC forever.

BG10 offers a three month free trial to test BG out on your pc.
And has a free 5GB online secured backup storage feature.
