COMPLETE REVIEW

In the vast sea of antivirus software it can be very difficult to find a reliable antivirus product at a competitive price. BullGuard stands out for its great number of useful features, an easy-to-use interface as well as great customer support. It can find, identify and dispose of a wide variety of threats like viruses, worms, Trojans, rootkits on both older and newer Windows operating systems. BullGuard is great because it allows a trial period of 15 days for its basic BullGuard AntiVirus package, and a 60 days trial run for the premium BullGuard Premium Protection suite so you can make sure you got the right software for you.

Features

BullGuard is one of the easiest to use antivirus software on the market. Your first encounter with the software will be a speedy installation process that is simplified so anyone can do it. With its intuitive design, the dashboard allows you clean survey of your PCs condition. With many useful tips frequently available on the main interface, BullGuard is great for beginners. From the dashboard you can perform different scans and activate any features offered in you package with just a few clicks. BullGuard scans your PC’s disk memory for viruses and alerts you of any threats it finds. It also has an automatic email filter that keeps your inbox neat by blocking spam from ending up in your mailbox. With a great firewall, you won’t have to worry about unauthorized access to your computer. BullGuard offers many levels of protection including a great feature against identity theft. Social media protection is also included as a basic feature. As with any top tier antivirus software, BullGuard offers a Parental control hub from where you can limit certain users from accessing different online content.

Pricing

Price: $17.97

Performance

BullGuard didn’t do so well on the AV-Test performed in early 2016, by mistaking four clean files for threats and thus falling below the industry average in this area of protection. In spite of the poor result on the AV-Test, BullGuard offers solid real time protection against most known and new threats. It does this with its signature Behavioral detection tool that helps in identifying viruses before they’re even characterized as threats in the virus registry. To make sure your antivirus database is always fresh, BullGuard automatically updates itself periodically, or you can also check for updates manually.

Help/Support

There are many easy way to contact BullGuard customer support. There is a live-chat option that offers 24/7 support in English. However, if you wish to speak with someone in Swedish, Danish, German, Dutch or French, customer support in these languages is available between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. CET. You can also request contact through email or social networking sites. The BullGuard website has an impressive knowledge database with many FAQ and tutorials. A forum is available should you want to connect with other BullGuard users and try solving your problem with their help.
