    Who said they didn't like BullGuard because it auto actions infections??

    Who said they didn't like BullGuard because it auto actions infections??

    There were a few users here that said if BullGuard was configurable in such a way that it wouldn't automatically do the action, but instead, give the user a choice, they would have purchased BullGuard Internet Security.

    So I posted this suggestion on their forums and someone told me that it is possible!!

    So what were all the complaints about :rolleyes:

    is that for the custom scan you set up though or is it for the real time protection?? in your post you suggest going to custom scan and create profile. i dont only want it to be when i actually tell it to scan but i want the option in real time of what option to choose. i currently do not have it installed so ill have to reinstall it to test it out but i dont think ill have time till later this weekend.

    look above bro, the image on the left is for the real time scan to set it not to auto disinfect

    the right image is the custom scan which you can create to not have it auto disinfect while doing a custom scan

    Ive uninstalled as the nag screen is becoming a pain.Also there seems to be a problem with the firewall registering with the security centre.it always says firewall is turned off.:thumbd:
    Good program but the nag screen is a definate no-no for me.

    How does BullGuard use BitDefender engine?

    Can someone explain to meh how does one antivirus use another's engine and signatures?

    I don't understand how this works, how they have a diff. program yet they use the same enginem and how on earth does BitDefneder for example others to use its good engine and put it on a better program??

    Re: How does BullGuard use BitDefender engine?

    I will try to explain it but take note I am not an AV dev so I may be mistaken.

    An AV is built upon different parents. I am not going to be able to explain them all but I will try my best.

    Malware Database: The data containing all malware sigs, heuristics rules, ect. It pretty much provides the "scanning detection information" of the product.

    Engine: However a malware database is no good without something to use that information, that is where the engine comes in. The engine actually does the "scanning" of a file, it also unpacks files to scans, and pretty much puts the malware database to use.

    Extras: The extras are extended part of the antivirus product. Used to make that product "unique". This can be their cloud, their behavior blocker, whatever the vendor is good at.

    UI: Then you have the UI layer of the Antivirus Product.

    Vendors license out their products in a couple of different ways. You can be a "rebrand" which pretty much takes a product and changes the name on the product but other then the name change the "UI + Engine + Extras + Database" is all the same. These rebrads are like the antivirus protection many ISPs offer.

    Then you have the SDK. These SDK is normally the engine + malware database (in some rare cases the vendor decides to only license the engine ex: Thehacker and Bitdefenders engine). The vendor can use the SDK to work the engine to better serve them. Bitdefender is a very popular SDK providers at the moment being used by: G-Data, BullGuard, Emsisoft. The SDK users can add their own engines alongside the BitDefender. Some SDK vendors are better able to fix bugs then the SDK maker which is why some people prefer to use the SDK built one. Kaspersky and GFI/Sunbelt are other popular SDK providers. Kaspersky was widely used for a while. As far as I am aware Kaspersky only sdks the same engine as its corp engine so the Kaspersky SDK is slightly behind the Kaspersky personal products. That is why ZoneAlarm for example just got a lot of new AV engine tech that Kaspersky users have been enjoying for a short while. Ad-Aware/Lavasoft uses the GFI/Sunbelt engine in its Ad-Aware products however I do not know the difference between the two engines of what is and what is not provided.

    I don't know what the avg. cost for a SDK license is and as far as I am aware no public information is available for that.

    I hope I cleared some things up for you

    Re: How does BullGuard use BitDefender engine?

    It often depends on the license between original maker and the licensee.

    In some cases they outsource engine and signatures, meaning they just incorporate that into their own program, but signatures and updates for it are supplied by the original maker.

    In other cases engine is licensed but the licensee also makes their own signatures for it along with the ones provided by the original vendor.

    In other cases they buy the engine, fully redesign it and use it as their own with their own signatures. This one isn't as common but not impossible.

    Hi guys . New here . My question is fairly simple . I uninstalled my Antimalware and firewall to install the Bullguard Suite . I cannot use it because you MUST log in first . Well , they are down for a 4 hour maintenance block . WHY in the world would any software company sell such software making it impossible to use unless you log in ? I cannot log in due to maintenance so , I am without protection . As in this case it has pretty much ruined any chance of me buying the product .:rolleyes:
    Thanks

    I just tried to install BullGUard on my step dad's computer ( I have a 5 PC / 7 year license) and got the same error

    I contacted support and they said they are running maintenance for god's sake! a security company letting all its users down with no prior warning

    I am gonna cancel my license and ask for a refund
