    I don't know if this is the correct thread to write about Forticlient. If not please any moderator remove it to the apropriate thread.
    As i live in a country (Paraguay)were normal Voip phone calls are blocked by the national telephone Company i needed to find a solution to use a voip service in order to make cheap overseas phone calls to the US and Spain.
    Via google i stumbled upon Forticlient (a free software) which i downloaded here:
    http://www.fortinet.com/products/endpoint/forticlient.html

    I was quite impresed by there VPN/firewall services...but didn't knew they also had an ANTIVIRUS on board!!

    Anyone used this piece of software beforeo_O To me their website looks legit.

    Up till now i am very pleased with it and i use it since 3 weeks. I did an online virus scan on my PC (Windows XP) and it was clean. I also use Spybot agianst spyware.

    thanks.

    Paradutch, perhaps you may want to review a recent discussion on this Wilders thread: Fortinet Security Suite.

    I revisited it earlier this week and uninstalled it after about two hours.

    Still buggy (a hanging initial signature update and the "web Shield is expired" notification bug is still there) and based on test results of their paid antivirus, I'm not confident at all in the level of AV protection it will provide.
    You would think that by now, the bugs would have been effectively addressed.

    In short, I think it has a nice looking GUI, but that's about all I can say for it at this time.
