Blueyonder PC Guard

Has anyone any knowledge of the Blueyonder PC Guard? as a customer I have had an email offering the complete security package free (to all blueyonder customers).
It has Anti-virus, Anti-spyware, firewall, parental control,pop up and ad blocker, and a privacy guard.
I have AVG, Zone alarm, crap cleaner and Microsoft antispy ware on my PC now, I was wanting to know if Blueyonders will be as effective as the software I have already?
Thought it would be better if I could get one programme to do the the same job as the four I use now.

I have installed PC Guard from telewest and its great so far. I uninstalled Zone Alarm and AVG but kept Ccleaner, Adaware, Spybot and Spyware blaster. Ive had no trouble so far

Thanks I have read all the information via the links, Im going to leave things as they are for the moment as I have not had any problems with what I use now.

After I installed this it completely blocked the computers on my lan, inspite of saying they were all allowed. Not configureable enough.

Blueyonder do state it does not support networks even if you dont use the firewall it is still a usefull little tool

Although none of you appear to have had trouble.. I have.
I installed according to instructions, removed Zone Alarm and Adaware, however, I began to crash, usually when unattended. As a result some films I had programmed InterVideo to record, late at night, failed to operate.

Because I have a very complicated set-up, I had some problems removing Blueyonder... one dll refused to delete, and even though I used notepad to remove in bits, it would not save the blank page.

In the end I used "System Restore" of 1st September to remove it by reverting to then. I did have to re-install some new programs and update others, some unexpectedly. The situation has not re-occurred!
