    Just a quick note to let the regular readers know that I have been running WSA and Bullguard Internet Security 2013 simultaneously on several machines recently with good results; very little system "drag" and great boot times. :)

    I was running AVG and AVG ISS (mostly the 2012 version) for a long time on some systems, but I have not been happy with any of the AVG recent test results; it seems like AVG always finishes in the "also ran" category way too much while Bullguard test results just get better and better. :cool:

    I will keep this thread updated if I run in to any problems running these two software products at the same time or if I continue to enjoy success as well. :thumb:

    ps: I forgot to add that I am running Windows 7 x64 Home Premium.

    Bulguard IS has a detection rate of 99.2% (AV Comp)
    WSA below 80% (AV Comp)

    What do you hope to achieve from WSA + Bullguard IS o_O?? Running 2 or more real time antimalware will NOT increase your level of security!!!!

    I beg to differ. Bullguard uses standard "downloaded" malware definitions that are updated on some kind of a regular basis; Webroot uses "cloud-based" malware definitions that, once updated, provide immediate detection of malware that Bullguard may have missed.

    I'm hoping this thread does not become bloated with bull-ware....

    Lol. So much hate makes you blind...

    How can you be sure the samples missed by Bullguard weren't detected by WSA?

    What I was trying to say was that WSA alone is enough,you do not need Bullguard!:D :D :D


    http://forums.pcworld.com/index.php?/topic/104454-2-antivirus-at-a-time/

    Q:hello all,
    can I/laptop run 2 antivirus programs at a time and NOT have them conflict in normal opperations?
    thanks,
    Gaby

    A: The rule is install and run only one.
    I am unaware of any exceptions.
    Same goes for firewalls.

    What AV programs are you looking at?

    I've spent hundreds of hours doing offshore trolling for fish. This experience has taught me that a lot of the time, instead of a catching a desireable fish, you often times catch nothing but a lot of trash fish instead. :rolleyes:

    The good news is that a lack of knowledge of something doesn't make that something not exist. Bacteria still existed thousands of years ago when people thought that magic and evil spirits caused wounds to get ugly and gross and make people die.

    So WSA can continue to be an exception, even if some people are unaware of that fact.

    Exactly - WSA and Prevx before it have been compatible with all other security products since 2006, so there is definitely some lack of awareness going on!

    From the official Webroot forum:

    "Farewell
    Options
    ‎08-05-2012 11:13 AM

    Hi Kit,

    I regret to inform you that as of today Aug 05, 2012 I am no longer a WSA Antivirus user.

    I consider the amount of money spent for 5 licenses and the amount of time spent on this forum as an investment in education – I had a wonderful opportunity to learn the truth about WSA beyond the overgenerous advertising.

    Ironically, my first antimalware ever was Webroot Spy sweeper - 10 years ago – which unfortunately had the
    same fate – I dumped after several months.

    I wish you luck in your endeavor with Webroot!

    Sincerely,

    Claudiu Botezatu"



    Nuff said... Me thinks ~ The amount of threads that get side tracked & lose the original focus by the minority who are out just to cause exactly that is not on - Claudiu you are a very bitter troll of the highest order who not only posts his feelings in threads but also PM's (trolls) members with your comments of woe. Each & every post you have made in weeks has been on WSA yet you don't use it, get a life & or grow up. I think you should be banned.

    I no longer use the PM option. The PMs are not moderated and have received some inappropriate messages from disturbed forum members.

    okay this is not normal of me and this is not how i am i just want to say that in advance to the mods i want to apologize and if they feel they need to delete this i have no issues with that.

    i am normally a very calm and very understanding person. so after saying that we wouldnt have "gang up" if you didnt bash them at EVERY single chance you get to. we all know and we understand you dont like the program or you dont use it. leave it at that. no one needs a pm from you called them a kiss a@@ among others, and no one needs to hear you put webroot down at literally every chance you get here and other places. all you have to do is google your name and see all the places you troll. after some of your pm comments i did this and you clearly troll many places and knock webroot ALL over the web. why? i dont know. maybe webroot somehow did something to you i have no idea the reason but seriously you are the only person i think on any forum i have on a ignore list. once you resort to sending people pm's to not only call them names but make comments like you do i would not blame anyone for doing the same. i have no issues with you personally as i dont know you personally, which also is why i say there was no need for saying much of the stuff you do. seriously chill out and if you really honestly have a true issue with a product by all means state it. but otherwise LET PEOPLE MAKE THEIR OWN decisions and if they like a product great if they feel it protects them great and when it doesnt one day then maybe they will feel the same way you do about it. i am not a sole dedicated wsa user i own lic's for nearly every product out there. but i do like wsa and i really like their support which i have only ever seen on a rare occasion from other companies. so if im happy with it LEAVE ME ALONE. and the same should go for anyone else. wilders is not a place to come to bash products there are plenty of places if you want to do that. i have been a member of wilders for A LONG time and you come here with just a few posts and almost every one is to bash webroot. i even tried to joke in the pm until you decided to cal me a kiss a@@. i think of wilders almost like a family place and have seen some of the people here for years.

    look for yourself, maybe you will realize why everyone is upset with you here. again please accept my apologies to the mods and i do not mean to get upset with you but i feel you crossed a line in your trolling here and i finaly decided i had to say something.
