    Just bought a new machne for the missus and looking to install a anti-virus program and come across this one. Has anyone heard of or tried it before as the last thing I want to do is install something which cannot prevent infection. The missus would not let me back in the house

    I have heard of it but you can do better. There are many good av's out there that are tried and true that you would be better able to depend on. Just one that comes to mind if you want a firewall and antivirus suite is Panda platinium 7 but there are more out there. you might want to go to this link and check out some of the different av's detection rates for a start. you might want to check eset/nod32 while you are there.

    Thanks for the heads up after looking at all the options available have narrowed it down to a choice of either f-prot or f-secure.

    of the two my choice from experience from use would be f-prot, pretty darn good program.

    Bullguard was basicly a repackage Bitdefender Pro with an added online backup. Now reading about their beta for version 5, I think it may be worth trying out when it arrives. They keep the very good Bitdefender AV engine but replace the firewall with Sygate's. And it only costs $39 usd for the package. I'm a little skeptical about the package, but to have Sygate & Bitdefender for $39, I think it will be worth a trial version.

    Many thanks for the advice guys, but I think I will go down a well trodden path for now. Better to stay on the right side of the missus for now, especially after forgetting her birthday prezzie.

    The one thing that turns me off bullguard is that it's packaged and bundled with KAzaa & other P2P programs

    That definitely doesn't fill me with confidence as to it's abilities

    if stopping viruses and other malware is what you want
    I would go for either NOD or Kapersky

    Wow, you're giving her an antivirus program as a late birthday gift?!? That should get you just about the same reception as when I gave my wife a vacuum cleaner for our wedding anniversary.:D
