    Hi Guys

    I know CA products are not popular at Wilders; however, we must be willing to give it a try, I sure will. You never know you might like it. ;).

    Thanks.

    heavy and really crapy detection -protection and terrible to uninstall it:thumbd: :thumbd: :thumbd: :thumbd:

    from what ive seen, from large scale corporate sails

    for example, the high school in my area, every single computer was using CA, same with the hospital nearby, the systems are using CA

    I guessed so. Still surprise about people who choose this in the corporate.

    They took the brilliantly conceived tiny firewall, a product way ahead of it time, and absolutely gutted it, an offense I'll never forgive them for :mad:

    Those prices are beyond absurd! You can get Avira Premium AV for half that price and the Suite is more expensive than any other Security Suite I have seen...:blink:

    Come on guys trial it first and form an opinion later. Do not let pass experience deter you. Look at Norton; there were people who swore off Norton and things have changed for the best with Norton the same could be true with CA.

    Thanks.

    Call me conservative but I only posted because I was downloading it that day! (See bottom pic, that's 1:33PM GMT +11) What would be the point of including a link to a yet-to-be-published comparison page?

    I've been trialling Antivirus Plus since Friday. So far :thumbd:

    Click "Fix Now" because it wants you to run a full scan'
    CAAMSVC.EXE RAM use grows, 100% CPU, then crashes, then the scan starts running until "Failed".
    Reboot and try again, same thing.

    That was my thought as well.

    A Hospital here in Sweden got infected via a USB stick last year.
    Though, this Swedish Hospital was using F-secure, and not CA :D
