"Just Say NO!"0.5 starson by ParthenonGenesis
Pros: I do like the Clean Cache Now option for quick dumping. I wish all AV software had this option.
Cons: Everything else. I am an IT and I work with computers everyday. I have seen less problems with AVG free downloads then I have with this poorly made product.
Summary: I enjoy my trips to CompUSA when I go to pick up the occasional computer part, and I always found their employees to be well educated untill I allowed one of them to talk me into buying the CA security suite for the office I work for.
I was happy to give Norton the dump from our office and the installation of CA was not really all that difficult from my perspective, but I can see how it could be difficult for the average user.
From day 1 of this softwares installation the office had problems. We were infested by 3 different viruses in 2 months time, one of which appeared on my computer and destroyed my Master Boot Record (and I am a cautious person when navigating online). The computers now run very slow and a number of programs become unresponsive. When Microsoft sends auto updates that require a restart the computers (all of them) freeze up on the exit screen. I wont even mention the extreme F.U.B.A.R involed in fixing it so outlook could receive mail.
From the moment it first turns on you hear a nice crackle added to the Windows welcome screen jingle. It is a poorly designed peice of software and it has been an IT nightmare... although it does give me job security.
I have not lost faith in CompUSA, but I will never buy the software they are peddling without research.
I wish I could take every box off the store shelves and sell it to the terrorist to screw up all their computers, or perhaps sell it to 3rd world countries to burn for fuel... But not here! This product is un-American. CA makes baby Jesus cry and kills unicorns. Just Say NO!
