Features:
  • Antivirus for all Windows PC's. Stops bugs in their tracks. According to independent labs BullGuard Antivirus is the best software there is. That’s because we’ve combined traditional signature-based detection with industry-leading behavioural detection. In short, you get multi-layered defence that stops all known and unknown viruses before they can infect your computer.
  • Unwanted applications. Stop them before they take control. Some programs contain adware, they install toolbars and modify your system settings. They're not malicious like trojans or worms but they can change your browser settings, alter your home page and direct you to another search engine by default. BullGuard's unwanted app tool flags up these programmes and stops them from changing your settings.
  • Spamfilter. Never be troubled again. Stop that annoying spam from getting through to your inbox by blocking it with the BullGuard spam filter. You’ll no longer be irritated by irrelevant messages and what’s more it also protects you from phishing scams.
  • Safe Browsing. Brings the dark to the light. Malicious code often hides in websites. When you unwittingly click on a link your PC becomes infected and data is often stolen. BullGuard safe browsing warns you of hidden danger lurking in websites – so you’re always protected.
  • High System Performance. It doesn’t slow you down. Many antivirus software protection programmes slow computers down. BullGuard Antivirus has been designed to ensure your computer maintains consistently high performance. So whether you code, design or game you can still expect the computer operation you’re used to.
Easy to use. Simple, elegant and effortless.
Installs quickly and is easy to manage. With an intuitive interface you can easily customise BullGuard Antivirus to suit your needs, whether it’s setting the spam filter, running scans or adjusting protection levels.

Anything similar for Mac suggested?
Pretty damning review here: techradar.com/uk/…rus

You're probably better off saving a fiver and going with one of the higher-rated freebies here, like Avast, AVG, Avira free, or Panda (these guys do independent tests): https//ww…et/

Avast and Malwarebytes seem to come recommended, along with uBlock Origin for your browser. A lot of people I know with Macs don't bother with antivirus software though, because the risk is so much lower than for Windows. Whether it's worth it depends on how savvy the user is at avoiding dodgy sites and identifying deceptive emails really.
Bought thanks

The techradar review does not really count as it was negative about not being able to to use on multiple PC, and this item is a 3 user licence

I like your second link, thanks, its making me consider Avira - not used it for over 10 years

Lol, Google "fileless malware", that's the latest trend, you don't even have to download anything now, just visit a compromised site.

A good chunk of people with Mac's are infected but have no idea. "My Mac is so much quicker than you PC"

"Yeah that's because you don't have an AV client monitoring every process protecting you."

I still don’t think paid AV is needed. Keep your system and browser up-to-date. If something sounds too good to be true, don’t click etc.
People often browse the web and click a link in a site they are interested in (or from a site they frequent) and get a rogue message saying adobe flash or java is out of date. To you or me it’s obvious but not everyone is as internet savvy as us. As much as I hate the resource hogging and potential data logging I would have to say it’s still one of the essential apps. Setting everything up to be safe without it is not easy for everyone.

I was talking more about this: "we were able to disable BullGuard's file system filter driver with a single standard Windows command (requiring admin rights). As a result, BullGuard Antivirus wasn't able to detect malware as it was downloaded, unzipped or otherwise saved to, or opened from our hard drive." Doesn't really inspire confidence, and they also say it didn't detect their ransomware simulator. Not saying it's terrible, but it's probably not really better than some of the free ones (to which they also compare the latest test result they have for Bulldog at the end, and Windows Defender and others seemed to have better detection rates.) Avira always seems to come out very well indeed, and I believe they use the same detection engine in their free version as in the paid one, it just has fewer fancy features.

Each to their own, Macs are still at lower risk even ten years on... Technical challenges aside, I just don't think it's worth the bad guys putting that much effort into developing malware for them when Microsoft has a vastly bigger market share. If you stick to known sites, use a good adblocker like uBlock, and don't open unsolicited emails I maintain the risk is low. Most users should probably have some form of protection though. Hadn't heard of fileless malware, that's disconcerting but from what I can see a recent Trojan for OSX still relied on the user downloading a dodgy cryptocurrency app.

Mac's are a lower risk because all the security is set at maximum from install where windows has it virtually all turned off at install to make it as simple as possible for anyone to install.
The increase in malware for Mac's now appears to be higher than for PC's. I find that statement to be possibly misleading as on my Mac if it wishes to install anything it requires the master password to install the malware & on the machine so whilst there may be a trillion more bits of malware the vast majority of Mac users are highly unlikely to install it.
I use Avast free on my Mac as a virus protector & Malware bytes Free for malware

It was true when viruses were .exe files, now they are more often browser/script based and not ‘Windows applications’.

This is a mega resource hog. BitDefender is much more light on resources. Night and day performance on an i5 rig with 32gb RAM and SSD drive so machine was well capable.
Lol Antivirus. This isn't 1995 anymore.
I can't justify paid anti virus software at all. Many of the top vendors (e.g. Sophos) offer free packages that are more than enough for the average user.

Agreed, check your bank most are offering free anti virus software.
Avast free never had any issues.
Better to get the full version Bullguard Internet security, it has a lot more functions including firewall and a really handy function that helps speed your system up when you play PC games.
Will this prevent your files being deleted by malicious software, i.e Windows updates? If so take my money!
Windows 10 security system is better than these. It doesn't cost anything either

This. Windows Defender used to be absolute garbage but it's come a long way. I stopped paying for antivirus last year. If you're pirating apps etc. then a virtual machine is your friend.
It's a shame that Barclays removed free Kaspersky, but I guess they had to given the privacy reports. Not sure how much truth there was to it though!

You're a Windows 10.

You come back to me when whatever is "built into" Windows 10 saves you from a horrific ransomware attack because you clicked a dodgy link from Sergeant Commander Bobo offering you a $1,000,000 wire transfer.

Just been told this was 50 quid but i was given free with my new honor magic book. Here was i thinking i got a great deal. Suppose free is ok tho

Last time I bought antivirus was around 8 years ago got malware in 3 months and Norton disabled.

Things have move on thought I use Firefox with add block and touch wood no problems in the last 8 years or so.

only problem was Avast blocked some security updates around 3 years ago and my laptop crashed and would not reboot.

luckily windows has its own image backup system which I recommend save an image to an external flash/hardrive.

Backup and running an hour later
Crazy cheap - this is less than I pay when buying 50 at a time. They must rely on their commission when you renew

Not a big fan of the all-singing and dancing Techradar site. A few of the products they gave poor reviews to are actually very good. For e.g. they blasted the HTC U12+. I am typing on that handset right now and I seriously love this phone. Everyone I have shown it to likes it too.
finknottle25/04/2020 18:03

along with uBlock Origin for your browser


I've moved over to Brave on both desktop and android (where their inbuilt adblocker excels)
Have Bullguard for years. I know for a fact that it picks up some viruses that my previous Avast couldn't. Very happy with it, bought one now for when current sub runs out.

MacOS is lower risk than Windows, but it’s a growing risk. Apple’s marketshare has grown a lot the last few years - why wouldn’t someone malicious want a piece of that pie?
Just use defender, always rated highly, and it's built in, and low maint and resource. Just don't get why people buy AV
Haven't had an anti-virus installed since Windows 7. Every now and then I'll download and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware just for peace of mind but it never catches anything. Using Firefox with AdBlock Plus installed combined with Windows has served me very well. I shudder at the days when we had to install those resource-hogging, pop-up toting, anger inducing antivirus programs (AVG, Avast, Norton, Bullguard, I'm looking at you...).

Not really a "damning report" is it? They raised some concerns, one of which they had already fixed and the other was something they did within their machine with access, not from outside, which also got patched.

I've been using Bullguard personally and on my business pcs for over 10 years, with no problems at all. The best part is that is that the developers largely leave it alone rather than constantly try to add crap in just to seem to be doing something new like other software. You set it up and forget about it.

I've also never paid full price for renewals as there's always a deal floating around somewhere and they stack, so for just over a fiver per year, that's another 5 years I'm happy to buy for less than the retail price for 3 years.
