CA have joined Microsoft and are offering a free antivirus + firewall normally $49.95.

CA "eTrust EZ armour"

this package from CA does seem to offer more than just the basic package "free" products offer.

It`s an open market, take your pick! or we would all use Zonealarm...............?

As johnnyrocker says there are plently of other lifetime free products - Sygate, AVG etc etc

Whats the big deal with CA "eTrust EZ armour"

I have AVG and zonealarm- they do the job but they have not got any special features- which hardly no-one uses!

no big deal for me either, but for anyone who might, and are looking for another choice, which there always seems to`s FREE.

Features, pop up stopper/ad prevention,and so on.

No I don`t use it, I use Outpost, I`ve used Norton, which caused bigger headaches than it was worth, and a swine to uninstall .
