    Has anyone got any knowledge of the AV engine used in the program called BullGuard?

    Thank you.

    Thank you bigc73542

    We should have mentioned that it would be far from us to even consider switching from NOD32. We saw Bullguard in association with some other software and just wondered what it was all about. Thank you again!

    To QSection from Firefighter!

    I remember somehow that BullGuard av has a bit modified engine that BitDefender has. If u are looking at those detection rates between BullGuard and BitDefender in each tested category of av-test.org and VirusP tests, it can't be so wrong to think about their similarity!

    Best regards,

    With bullguard being in partnership with kaZa it just makes sense that it would have some sort of spyware included ;)
