One of the best and impartial review sites to get 'FREE' software is Gizmo's Freeware. Here is a link to the anti-malware section but they have sections for everything, educational, office, antivirus, archivers, cd burning, media players, Zzzzzz, Zzzzzz.... and on and on.

This software is not worth purchasing. Not because it is "bad" (it might not be) but because any such software isn't really worth paying for with perfectly decent free options available.

Use the free MS Security Essentials (in Win 8 it's already installed as "Defender"), and use a different browser such as Chrome, Firefox or Opera. In the former two, install adblock.

Then just be careful where you browse.

Better to use free AV like Avast and anti-malware like SuperAntiSpyware/Malwarebytes/Windows Defender.

It doesn't take much to stop Sage working perticullarly if you are talking about line50 over a Network, Terribly designed piece of software, needs to be rewritten to use a Proper Client/Server architecture with a real DB engine not by directly writing to the DB across a network (Smb) share.

Bitdefender is a nice light antivirus, sees to do reasonably well in detection tests and this is a reasonable price per license, Companies do need to make some money somewhere otherwise they cease to exist

Actually, wondering if that's the product on offer now - well if its not - go for Avast!

Nope, no design facility. There is a print function, in which it will take an existing picture and try to fit onto the insert/cd face - all very rudimentary and of very little use.

Try the Ashampoo Cover Studio 2 demo (£7 to buy right now). Never used it, so don't know if it is any good. My Canon printer came with an app to do that.

Avira free anti virus with free Comodo Firewall works very well. A monthly scan with free Malwarebytes is also useful.just Google for them and make sure you are on the proper home page.

That's a dream, not reality for ANYTHING.



I know, but I have tried this version on 3 different PC's and it failed on all three. I have used Acronis True Image since version 7 and had very few problems. When using a product like this the user has to have confidence that it will perform as required. Acronis have a very bad reputation for leaving products unfinished and bug ridden and then moving on to a new version, they then bombard the customer with emails saying and good the new product is. Visit the Acronis forums and you will see that there are many dissatisfied customers. You have been lucky (so far) so enjoy the product, but I recommend that you create another image with alternative software - just in case.

20 years of IT support here and I pay for my AV......... (Kaspersky Internet Security so with the firewall) I used to pay for Norton as it was once the best, then I decided 'why not try a free one'....... AVG / Zonealarm got installed, not quite as good as I was used to but was free. After some time I noticed a few issues here and there and ran some independant scans on my comp, oh what a suprise virus on my machine that AVG didnt pick up!

As above, I'm now back paying for my protection! There IS a reason why companies do a free and charged for version!

ps just for the giggles we have just rolled out SEP 11 in work and its caused no end of problems around the UK slowing down machines pmsl! Although to be fair I think thats half to do with the config

norton was actually fairly decent around the time of Win 95 to 98 era but it suddenly became the devil of all AV products and still has that rep amongst the people who listen to their mates rather than people employed in the IT industry.

having said that, theres a lot in the IT side of things that probably still believe that the Symantec products havent been improved, cos they don't actually WANT to believe it.

its quite bizarre that theres a snobbery amongst IT folk about both paying for and using free AV softwares!

If I found something that worked aswell as my Eset Smart Security, for free (legit), I'd happily use it

Many decent points.....especially true about Norton/Symantecs reputation. Their latest AV prodcut is good compared to their previous install-and-never-manage-to-remove-me versions. But its not just AV products they have managed to wreck over the years. Backup Exec was a great product until it was rebranded Symantec. - Now its as buggy as Charlie Dymocks boots.

well as i'm sure you'll agree, theres nothing thats ever 100% secure and common sense is a lot of it.
I saw computers coming in with just about every different internet security on.

but I dont think I would ever reccomend a free limited security piece of software such as AVG free version.
why make a premium version if the free one does it all?
money?
they gotta pay their staff and researchers, programmers etc somehow.

any discussion about internet security on HUKD will always have something similar to "I've used the free ones and had no problems" and the opposite side of "well i've been using XXX that I pay for and had no problems"

as for the temperature on here of paid for internet securities, its only proof that people don't believe they should pay for software in general.
not on how well it performs.

its not just limited to AV software, its ANY software on here.

Me personally I don't believe that the free limited security downloadable versions, coupled with 3 or 4 other pieces of free software, are a match for a decent security software suite such as Kaspersky, Eset or even the newer versions of Symantec products.

Please tell me you're not one of the 'Techs' that still believes Norton products are bloatware that slows your computer down?
if so, you're very out of touch. go read the reviews of the 2009/10 products and wake up.
sadly tho, the name Norton is doomed cos of their shocking repuatation.

by the way, I do work for Currys and sell Norton and Kaspersky, we also had AVG premium 3 user at £15 and couldnt give it away!
before that I was a tech at a local PC repair firm, till one of my bosses was prosecuted by Virgin Media for selling dodgy cable boxes.

I guess DSG stores have a similar rep to Norton products!

However, finding another job as a PC tech when I was made redundant wasnt that easy.

but I guess since I've said where I work, you'll write me off as someone who knows nothing and just sells whatever makes Currys profit.
