    Ive asked this question before on various forums, but never really had any feedback.

    There must be hundreds of people useing PCguard, supplied by Virgin, but you never see any opinions on it.

    I like it myself, but does anyone know anything about the software people behind it-which firewall is it? Which Anti Virus is it? etc.

    Anyone here use it?

    Never heard of it. Does it come free with a certain brand of PC or ISP?

    My brother-in-law was (as a customer of NTL) as it came with his cable connection but I believe that he has uninstalled it as it kept crashing his PC. Goggled it and have found a number of posts re. the same problem happening to other people. Believe that it is sourced from a company called Blueyonder. Have had a look at it and IMHO it is a lightweight. Even though it is free I reckon that you would have less trouble with some of the other suites out there, free or paid. My brother-in-law was trialing KIS the last time I heard (which reminds me that I should find out what he is up to).

    Goggle and see what that reveals.:thumb:
