    Hi all,

    My system supplied by PC Specialist is coming up to 12 months old. With the package, it had 12 months Bull Guard Antivirus, to which will end in 2 weeks. Can you guys recommend what to use next. Do I pay £50 for Bull Guard or is there a suitable free package.

    Cheers.

    Thanks again for the link, just did the download as only 2 days remaining on the Bull Guard. Do I have to re-download Panda on a monthly basis & if so, does it give a notification of close to expirer date.

    I use Kaspersky, never gave me any issues and is very friendly with my games. Doesn't minimize to desktop and stops everything that drains internet and CPU once there is an application in full screen.

    It is just a little bit hard to configure, but it is worth it IMO.

    I have been running with Windows 10's default defender and had no issues so far. I also run scans weekly with MalwareBytes. I also advise Adblock as it blocks many adware. Mostly, it is up to how you use the internet.
