    "Looks tough, but performance is mediocre."

    September 27, 2012  |   By Storme-chan

    Version: BullGuard Antivirus 12

    Pros

    - Simple/Easy to Use
    - Can back up any files for you.
    - Spam Filters
    - Parental Controls
    - Scans for viruses and removes them.
    - Does what it says on the tin.
    - Has many cool features that aren't available with any other AV software.

    Cons

    - Leaves behind traces of some viruses.
    - Detection isn't perfect.
    - It's Firewall produces a fair amount of Pop-Ups.
    - Some people have reported that the program won't open for them.
    - In tests, BG was compromised in seven percent of incidents.

    "BG10 ROCKS a good AV choice."

    December 7, 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.

    Updated on Dec 7, 2010

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