As NTL users are aware, they are now offering Netgear. This is a free anti-virus and pop-up program availabe only to users of NTL. It automaticaly upgrades every three hours.

In a few months they will be adding a Firewall and Anti-Spam at a small monthly charge.

Would be interested to hear from anybody who has installed it.

If it is anything like Telewest's PcGuard it wont be worth installing.

Have now installed Netguard - very unobtrusive program, neat and tidy. Gives you a number of options to use.

Had netguard on for one day - took it off again. Better sticking with the general freebies such as adaware, avast etc..

Well Netguard seemed OK until - playing " The Battle for Middle Earth" I noticed that if I saved a game, then it took ages to save.

I then disabled Netguard, and the time taken to save a game returned to normal ! I can only assume that Netguard was slowing it down because it was running a virus check on the contents of the save.

I will contact NTL tomorrow, and if they cannot provide a solution, then will replace Netguard with either avast or avg.
