"It's Not Spyware Or Adware"

April 12, 2007  |  By Reborn master

 |  Version: BullGuard 5.0

Pros

Bull guard is definitely not a spyware or adware.Because it's listed on Microsoft's antivirus partners.Easy to use interface.The antivirus detects and removes threats using bitdefender's engine.Offers excellent protection against p2p.

Cons

Antispyware was unable to removes spyware and adware.Firewall is confusing and less effective.Anti Spam didn't do well at keeping Spam out of in box.

"Beware software itself is like a spyware"

August 29, 2006  |  By mrboo1

 |  Version: BullGuard 5.0

Pros

Really a nice product in making sure p2p softwares downloaded files are spyware free.

It scans the memory while downloading takes place and destroys immediately any spyware and virus found.

Cons

Product itself is affiliated with spyware company and bring spyware on its own.

Its like God bring the devil along with it.

Really the product has no meaning when it brings spyware along with it in the free or demo version.

You cant try the product then it what way you can buy the product that is priced so high at $49.

There are loads of anti-spyware like ad-aware which does loads of function for a cheap price and trustable.

cannot be tried as the demo verion is not good but can be purchased but certainly I wont reccommend though, try ad-aware for it or spyware sweeper.

"This is a a fantastic product with great support"

July 16, 2006  |  By seanrr

 |  Version: BullGuard 5.0

Pros

this is an all in one tool that is easy to use, it is upadated daily and the live support is fantastic. If bullgaurd can not sort out an issue then it is submitted to the support team ,who will respond within an hour. The spam filter is great and easy to train. The back up facility,which is free, gives me peace of mind and the firewall is real time preventing anything malious happening whilst you are on or off line. Graet value for money and a fantastic product to boot.

"Simply FANTASTIC!"

May 16, 2006  |  By Blondie1965

 |  Version: BullGuard 5.0

Pros

I have been using Bullguard for over a year now and although it is pricey, it's worth every ***** penny! First, it is simple to use with a friendly interface. Even the most challenged PC user will be able to use it. Second, if you download stuff from the net or use any P2P programs, you MUST have this program. When downloading files, Bullguard advises me in a nanosecond that the file contains a virus. Amazing! It's saved me thousands of times. The virus scan is fantastic and easy to use. Third, the customer support is second to none. There is online support, which I have used many times, and they're very helpful. And if you have files that you wish Bullguard to analyze, they will do so and send an email back to you within an hour - though it's only ever taken up to 15 minutes. Other features include large backup space, excellent firewall, and lots more! I really feel safe with this product. Try it and you'll love it!

Cons

Automatic backup does slow down my PC while it's downloading files. Lasts only for about 30 seconds. But it's worth it!

"easy to use"

February 03, 2006  |  By chefdamo

 |  Version: BullGuard 5.0

Pros

I have used many internet scurity programs like mc afee witch killed my system and norton witch made my system run slow. Bullguard it great loads fast protects you right away and have not yet had a virus. With the other 2 I had some sort of problem with them. all I can say is I will be renewing bullguard. what i can say to you is if you tryed norton and mcafee orn any other security software and want something that works but is not sure get the bullguard trial and give it ago and see for yourself. bullguard says it updates every 8 hours mine today has up dated 6 time. Not like the others where you get a big update once aweek bullguard updates when the patch or anyother update is read better protection and faster updates and it does it it's self. Thanks bullguard your the best keep up the good work

Cons

I got to say there is not much about it to dislike. updates all the time and I got my moneys worth and more

"Avoid like the plague!"

January 27, 2006  |  By PinkShirts

 |  Version: BullGuard 5.0

Pros

None that I've found so far.

Cons

Adware and spyware festooned throughout this evil software. Soundly disgruntled having spent several hours fixing problems too numerous to mention that came along with this delightful piece of utter trash. I cannot emphasise this enough - AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

"WOW WOW WOW"

December 11, 2005  |  By Big then life

 |  Version: BullGuard 5.0

Pros

Once before, I had to format my hard drive due to a trojan that I had, no antivirus or spyware software could distroy it, well it came back, bullguard, got rid of it with no problems, I have not seen it since.

This program is just so cool, I found it on Amaxon, but wanted a trial so I came to download.com, and I will be buying it as soon as I can aford it, but for now I will stick to the trial

"BullGuard is malicious software"

September 29, 2005  |  By jaguar141

 |  Version: BullGuard 5.0

Pros

I have never actually used the product, but see below.

Cons

I am a Network Administrator that works at a company with five satellite locations and over 150 users. I am not affiliated with any software or anti-virus companies. I have had several systems where users have received BullGuard pop-ups that automatically began installing BullGuard in the course of their internet surfing.

I do not know how well BullGuard works but it is obvious from the malicious and surrepticious manner in which BullGuard attempts to install itself (like a virus or spyware) gives me grave concerns abut this company.

I did contact BullGuard about this apparent breach in ethicsand they have not replied. For a company to claim that they remove malicious spyware and viruses and then to distribute their product in the exact same manner is absolutely hypocritical. BullGuard needs to rethuink their business model if these are the practices that they choose.

NOTE: No system in our offices has ever had Kazaa or Kazaa lite installed. My content filtering blocks my users from connecting to Kazaa's installation site, they can run the installation executable , but it cannot download the required components.

BullGuard has shown up in basic every day web surfing, just like other forms of malicious spyware, and like a lot of malicious software, it immediately begins running it's installation executable.
