Gamers Anti Virus - Bullguard SteelSecurity

I found this anti virus software aimed at gamers and installed the demo (free for 2 months).

I had Macafee 8.1 which is a bit old and have been looking for some new anti virus. The anti virus is powered by Bullguard and the firewall is powered by sygate. The software detects when a games launched and switches into low resource mode and opens the ports for that game. It seems good while in game (CSS), although it has slowed down my pc slightly while not in game which I dont mind. You can configure all the gaming profiles and even add your own.

Has anyone else got this software and what are your opinions?

Use NOD32 mate, doesn't take up enough resource for you to notice in the first place

I dont even use a anti virus anymore, used NOD32 for years without getting a virus so thought whats the point.

Touch wood I havent had anything yet.

It doesn't look too bad, takes up 30+mb of memory tho

I use AntiVir as it's free and seems to work quite well. Also updates itself every day and doesn't take up much memory.

I switched to it after noticing f-secure was using a lot of resources and also after doing some research and finding it came 3rd in a test on av-test.org and the top 2 were expensive corporate suites

They used to give BullGuard with Kazaa. Thats good enough for me to NEVER want to use it.

Im quite happy with Avast.

Can`t argue with that at all.
